About the Author:

Roger Turner is an architect and award-winning landscape designer. His books include Better Garden Design, the first horticultural monograph ever written on the subject. He has written many articles in popular and learned journals and now lectures widely on gardens, garden design, plants, and garden history.

From Library Journal:

Turner, landscape architect and writer, begins with a good introduction of 18th-century England and its gardens. He follows with a biographical account of Lancelot ``Capability'' Brown and his many contributions to landscape design, including the creation of numerous parks for the English nobility. In particular, 15 of Brown's landscapes (e.g., Blenheim) are covered in detail, with illustrations ranging from original plans to photographs of the maturation of the gardens. Turner describes the grooming of nature, the plants used, and the practical and technical aspects of the work that created the natural landscapes that have made Brown immortal. A handsome and well-written book, highly recommended for subject collections. Daniel S. Kalk, Enfield Central Lib., Ct.
