The French country garden has experienced a renaissance in recent years. Following Rousseau's stipulation to "please the eye" the reader will find this is accomplished by placing what Jones identifies as "Land Art," right at the heart of the garden and making it the focus. Around it, she strikes a personal balance between formality and gentle disorder.

Drawing inspiration from the iconic region of Provence, New Gardens in ProvenceV features 30 designs detailing the full extent and exciting diversity of the modern French country garden.

Hundreds of arresting photographs capture Provence's seductive allure that are sure to gain favor among Francophiles. St. Fiacre the patron saint of gardens would approve of this wonderful celebration of new interpretations of French gardens, old-fashioned techniques, and the rediscovering of obscure heirlooms.
