Author Marianne Majerus was one of three photographers for the seminal book by Prince Charles, HRH The Prince of Wales, Highgrove: A Garden Celebrated, published in 2014, which Camilla Swift of Gardens Illustrated praised for its photographs, "images so breathtaking I want to jump into them."
In Garden Design: A Book of Ideas, she and Heidi Howcroft have created a stunning guide to designing gardens of all types. Ideal for all gardeners and landscape architects this book inspires and encourages while giving practical advice and clear instruction for creating a beautiful garden in any setting.
Any experienced gardener knows there is no single way to design a garden. Personal style and creativity are what make gardening exciting and produce an enjoyable garden. In this outstanding reference the concise text, 600 inspirational photographs and 24 real-life case studies can help anyone create a dream garden.
Incisive advice takes the reader through the entire process: assessing the garden situation, developing a design, installing the components, and finally, dressing the space. The brilliant color photographs show an enormous variety of gardens and their elements in detail, varying from large and small, to urban and rural, covering a wide range of styles, including contemporary, modern, city, Mediterranean and natural. There are plant recommendations throughout the book.
Garden Design profiles existing gardens to illustrate important considerations that will factor into the final result, such as, Where is Your Garden? What Do You Want From Your Garden? and Knowing Your Soil.
