The landscape designer-authors assembled this book from the more than 1,000 gardens they visited in 21 countries. They discuss how to choose, site, and maintain arbors, birdhouses, beehives, bollards, boot scrapers, bridges, drains, fences, fountains, furniture, gates, gazebos, lighting, paving, pergolas, planters, porches, decks, terraces, reflecting pools and ponds, sculptures and statuary, stairs, sundials, swimming pools, topiary and architectural plants, and walls. Much more than an inspirational photographic book, it is also full of practical advice for every garden. In his publishing memoir Godine at Fifty, David Godine selected it as one of his most memorable publications. Heavy; shipping/handling may be extra. Please keep this in mind when ordering.
