Roy Strong on Garden Design
Book Number: 52709
Conran Octopus March 10, 2000 8vo softcover 144pp near fine. There are many elements that make a garden different and special. However, all too often these elements are seen as playing a secondary role, but in fact they dictate the flavour of the whole garden. In this book, Roy Strong gives these features the attention they deserve by covering all aspects of garden design - which plants to use, architectural features and garden ornaments. Moreover, he never loses sight of the small garden as an entity and always considers how the features relate to each other, to the overall structure of the garden and to the planting schemes.nnAbout the AuthornSir Roy Strong is a leading garden writer, historian and designer. He has a weekly column on gardens in the Sunday Telegraph and is an avid practicing gardener, having transformed four acres of ploughed fields around his home into a widely acclaimed garden. He was formerly director of the Victoria and Albert Museum.

From BooklistnThe aim of this guide is not so much to provide practical advice as to introduce the principles of gardening in harmony with nature. Profusely illustrated with photographs, charts, drawings, and watercolors, the book outlines important considerations when planning a new garden. The goal is to design a habitat that will be appealing to birds, butterflies, and a wide range of fauna. Six separate regions of the country are identified in "The Backyard Habitat" section, which makes up the greater part of the text. Nearly 150 native plants are recommended, with more than 40 specific species noted for each region. The handsome format and ecology-conscious commentary make this a fine selection for gardening collections. Alice Joyce
