Book Description

A well-designed garden provides pleasure to owner and visitor alike but often eludes even the most experienced gardener. Encompassing many different disciplines, garden design is one of the most challenging art forms but, with time and practice, everyone can develop the necessary skills. The Essential Garden Design Workbook guides you through every stage of designing a garden from site assessment through to drawing up plans and selecting suitable hard landscaping and plants. By working through the book from start to finish, a designer garden is within everyone’s reach.

This practical workbook goes right back to basics and pinpoints the key practical essentials for a successful design. Here you will learn how to assess your site and experiment with design ideas that fit well with the garden’s surroundings. You will find easy ways to measure large spaces, estimate the height of a tree, and advice on the right proportions for a deck, pathway or steps. The book includes clear instructions for drawing up plans from initial site survey through to final design, complete with tips on drawing and rendering detail to give a professional touch.

This book is tailormade for hands-on gardeners who want to rework their gardens to achieve that sought-after ‘designer finish’. Hundreds of explanatory drawings and quick-reference diagrams provide ‘facts at your fingertips’ making this workbook a vital addition to the bookshelves of every gardener, design student and newly qualified professional.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A good and very practical garden design book 8 mai 2008
Par Gang Chen
This book covers all phases of garden design, from original research, obtaining the owner's requirements, site survey sketch, checklist and inventory, to conceptual diagrams, presentation plans, theme plan, preliminary garden layout plan and final planting plans.

It discusses space, light, proportion and scale, color plates, ground plane, vertical plane, overhead plane, materials, texture, principles of planting design, planting styles, practical considerations, seasonal effects, and rendering techniques for various plans. It also has a plant list and plant hardiness zones at the end. This is one of few books that actually discuss the design aspect of gardens / landscaping. Very practical!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent for even experienced landscape professionals 1 février 2006
Par NH Gardener - Publié sur Amazon.com
I am using this book as a textbook for a Garden Design class. I have several years of garden design experience and have many more years of gardening experience. This book explains the design process in an easy to understand and inspiring way. I have found that it addresses planting and design in subtley different ways that jog my mind to be more creative. It is well written, well designed and very informative.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A highly detailed design workbook 6 mars 2005
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur Amazon.com
The Essential Garden Design Workbook is a highly detailed design workbook especially intended for serious home gardeners, students of design, and professionals. Expertly written by Rosemary Alexander (the founder and principal of The English Gardening School), The Essential Garden Design Workbook is illustrated cover-to-cover with simple diagrams and sections of full color photographs. Individual chapters deftly cover necessary research and preparations, how to develop the initial design, what to take into account when finalizing the garden layout plan, creating a planting plan, visualizing and constructing the design, and a host of minor details. The Essential Garden Design Workbook is highly recommended as a detailed instructional for learning to blend individually creative instincts with practical necessities to create truly memorable gardens.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great for Beginners 20 août 2005
Par t knisely - Publié sur Amazon.com
I moved into a new house and needed to do something with the landscaping. It is a mess. I cannot afford to hire a professional, so I bought this book hoping it would help me come up with a plan on my own. I haven't finished the book yet, but am finding it very helpful. It is more like a text book on how to draw up a garden plan, aimed at professionals, but it isn't overly technical and is fairly informative. I would have given it 5 five stars except that I am not very artistic, and I wish the book had more info to help me in that regard.

I have been looking for a garden design book for some time that would be heavy on how to lay out the design professionally on paper. This book goes through the progression of the design process and shows each step in the process. It has been extremely helpful in my designing of a three acre property.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not for the do-it-yourselfer 1 juin 2011
Par book junkie - Publié sur Amazon.com
I didn't want to give the book a bad review because it appears to be a great book. I checked this out at the library thinking I could use it to help me design my garden, but that isn't what this book is for. It was clearly designed for landscape professionals. It spent a lot of time on how to draw plants so that your clients could understand your plans better, etc. Helpful for someone, but probably not for your average homeowner designing their own yard.
