This book is stunning! I loved looking at all of the various gardens throughout the world and seeing how each one is unique. I would definitely buy this book so that I could keep going back to it for inspiration.

Amazing, amazing book! Most "book of gardens" cover the same English gardens with a few others from Europe and Japan . This one has fantastic gardens from Australia, Africa, the Near East (my god what are they doing in Dubai?), Asia, the Scandinavian countries, South America. There are even gardens from Canada, including a beauty from Quebec that I will be heading to this summer. At first the book is almost an overload, but if you can study each individual picture you will find interesting ideas and designs in almost every one. I cannot imagine the work that went into making this book. PS, the biological garden of Australia and the city garden of Singapore are now on my must-see list.
