Designing Gardens Summary

Designing Gardens by Arabella Lennox-Boyd

The first part of this book explores Arabella Lennox-Boyd's philosophy and establishes the principles of her approach to design: the importance of relating the garden not only to the landscape but also to the spirit of the house and the individuality of the owner; how to establish the bare bones of a design - enclosing garden rooms, and opening up garden space; how to use vertical structures to best effect; and how to clothe bare bones with plants appropriate to the type of garden. Design ideas for everything from paving and pergolas to perennial plantings burst from every page, captured in Andrew Lawson's atmospheric images and Lennox-Boyd's plans.

The second part of the book looks in detail at more than 20 very different gardens, many these are private and never photographed before.

Designing Gardens Reviews

This book is a must for anyone redesigning their garden or for those just looking to update


'Definitely one for Christmas gardeners ... the photos by Andrew Lawson are first class and the text has much worth pondering ... Her pictures and advice on town gardens are spot-on. This book is well worth reading and studying and the author is still at the top of her tree.'
