I looked up this book because it has been recommended on other websites, and after reading it I would recommend it to others.

The book was originally published in the 1950's, so some of the plants discussed are those in vogue at the time, but the design principles are still very relevant.

The text was very straight-forward and easily understandable and clearly the author has a depth of experience and philosphical insight.

I especially liked the approach towards designing, which emcompasses establishing the structure and scale using trees, then stepping down to shrubs, perrenials, and herbaceous material all the while taking into account flow and movement by designing for texture and drift shapes.
