In this lavishly illustrated book Anita Pereire, herself a garden designer of great distinction, identifies and describes some of the major trends that are already pointing the way towards the gardens of the future.Her examples feature the work of gardeners and garden designers in five continents and range from large-scale landscape gardens to intimate patios and even grottoes.

All are illustrated with color photographs and described in a text which explains the underlying philosophies of their creators.Each of the twelve chapters takes a specific theme -- the growth of organic gardening, for example, the intermingling of indoor and outdoor spaces in patio and terrace garden or the growing fashion for incorporating works of contemporary art in sculpture gardens -- and illustrates it through the work of leading exponents.There are water gardens (from California, Belgium and Britain) and gravel gardens, a fashion that is likely to become increasingly important as global warming develops.

There are gardens that draw upon the inspiration of the past, such as Margot Knoxs mosaic garden in Australia or the stunning Abbaye dOrsan in France, and gardens that look to the future, like Britain, France and the USA, and grass gardens in Australia and Holland. There are gardens created by plant lovers, including spectacular tropical examples from the Caribbean and Brazil, and gardens created by those whose talents lie in the field of decoration and the visual arts, such as Yves St.

Laurents painted Garden in Morocco.In short, no matter where they live, how largeor small their gardens may be or what their tastes and interests are, gardeners will find here a fertile source of inspiration as well as a book which displays some of the finest and most exciting gardens that can be found anywhere in the world.
