This book presents the best garden designs of the last five years from more than 50 top garden designers. It offers design solutions for every situation, every area, all tastes and budgets, and any size of garden. It draws on the talents of celebrated designers such as Tom Stuart Smith, Luciano Giubbilei, Cleve West, Dan Pearson and Joe Swift. It also showcases the work of lesser-known designers whose innovating designs deserve wider recognition.

The process of garden design requires many thousands of small decisions in the pursuit of the most appealing solutions for outdoor spaces. But this book makes the complex process simpler by offering ample choices of contemporary design for you to explore what's possible, what's practical and what's affordable.

It offers cutting edge solutions for those seeking an entirely new look as well as key details that can make all the difference.
