Gardens Through the Ages

Gardens Through the Ages

by RoyStrong (Author)


In this innovative yet down-to-earth book, Roy Strong demonstrates that looking at garden styles of the past offers no just ways to restore or re-create garden styles of a particular period, but also an exciting treasure trove of ideas for small gardens today. Gardening through the Ages will enable anyone to make a garden entirely in keeping with the style and architecture of their home, whether it is a Georgian terraced house, a Victorian cottage or a 1920s suburban villa. But, just as some of the most interesting interiors are an eclectic fusion of styles, so Roy Strong presents hundreds of seductive and unusual ideas which can be mixed, adapted and used in any garden. As well as an abundance of photographs of existing gardens in twenty different historical styles, conceived with his unerring eye for period effects,and brought to life with stunning three-dimensional illustrations.
