That kind of look do you want in your garden -- showy summer colors, pastel borders, rhododendron glory? From classic formality to wetland foliage to windowboxes for a town home, these 25 great designs will offer something that's just right for your climate, landscape, and sense of beauty. For each type, you'll see how much maintenance is required, what site works best, and in which season it flourishes most brightly. A general guide to garden styles, choosing plants, and planting plans will get you started. Try a garden for wildlife, filled with a diverse selection of local trees, shrubs, and wildflowers; a subtly elegant Far Eastern look; a relaxed cottage garden in light shade, a foolproof family garden, herb and rose gardens, a prairie garden, and even one suitable for someone in a wheelchair!

Noel Kingsbury combines extensive horticultural knowledge with highly acclaimed design skills. As a plantsman he ran his own successful nursery specialising in rare and unusual plants. Now a garden designer and consultant, he is responsible for many prestigious gardens, including that of film producer David Puttnam. He is a regular contributor to The Garden, The Gardener and Country Life.From Booklist:
Everyone else's garden always looks so well organized and presented. How do people know what plants go with what plants, what flowers go with what flowers? They consult a book like this one, which "aims to guide you through the jungle of plant combinations--the art of finding plants and styles that you like, that will look good in your garden, and that will grow successfully." To that end, a veteran garden writer offers a series of plans for various seasons and reasons. A town garden is going to be different from a prairie garden, of course, but given the right circumstances, each type can be achieved by following this book's carefully wrought diagrams and sensitively colored illustrations.
