Through the ages, gardens have satisfied a range of needs, from growing food to demonstrating great wealth or providing an escape from the pressures of everyday life. For modern gardeners, the challenge of taking a patch of bare earth, however small, and turning it into a happier, more beautiful space is every bit as satisfying as creating a poem, a painting, or a piece of music. This magnificent book celebrates the garden in breathtaking full-color photographs and a wealth of factual material, from botanical, social, and horticultural history to detailed instruction on garden planning and cultivation. Covering a full range of topics, including design, ornaments, and contemporary examples worldwide, here is a rich, rewarding survey of the glory of the garden, from the biblical Eden and Nebuchadnezzar's Wonder of the World to today's atria and rooftop refuges.
