A garden is predominantly about plants and nature, but the hard landscaping is what gives it form and shape, providing a sense of order and architectural design, and introducing scale to what could otherwise be an unruly mass of vegetation. This innovative book explores the character of materials available for outdoor construction. The author looks in turn at natural materials such as stone, wood and clay; composites such as concrete, glass and metals; and new technology synthetics. She also looks at unconventional, less restrictive organic gardens, including untreated twigs and vines, reclaimed materials and everyday objects used for novelty effect. Each chapter examines the uses for which materials are most appropriate - from surfaces, walls, screens and boundaries to furniture and ornament - and works through structural and performance considerations to help you explore the options available and achieve the outdoor landscape you are looking for. To help you plan your garden from the outset, the book features hard landscaping ideas to appeal to all styles and tastes, such as polished limestone flooring; smart timber decking; moulded concrete furniture; stainless steel walkways; ceramic mosaic wall tiles; and dynamic Perspex screens. With over 300 beautifully evocative photographs and a wealth of inspirational suggestions from one of the garden world's leading writers, Stone, Wood, Glass & Steel is an invaluable sourcebook of cutting edge ideas for modern, low-maintenance gardens.

At Dwell, we're staging a minor revolution. We think that it's possible to live in a house or apartment by a bold modern architect, to own furniture and products that are exceptionally well designed, and still be a regular human being. We think that good design is an integral part of real life. And that real life has been conspicuous by its absence in most design and architecture magazines.

Designing a garden is a complex task. Where do you start? What kind of skills do you need? What are the logical steps in creating a design? How do you communicate your ideas to a client, and how do you accommodate a client’s requests while maintaining the integrity of the project? The answers to these questions, and many more, can all be found in Understanding Garden Design. Most books on garden design focus on only one or a few aspects of garden design—choosing plants or creating a hardscape, for example. This comprehensive, accessible book lays out the entire process from start to finish in clear, precise language that avoids the pitfalls of “designspeak.” In fact, garden owners and clients of garden designers who want to understand more about the designer’s craft will be able to profit from the book’s lessons. Among the many topics covered are how to document a site, how to determine what a client needs and wants from the garden, how to take architectural features into consideration, how to think about circulation and lay out paths, how to use basic design principles, how to work with plants, and how to create a final design. Practical aspects are clearly laid out, including working with contractors and staying on top of the various phases of construction. This thorough handbook is profusely illustrated with helpful photographs and diagrams. A particularly interesting tool is the hypothetical garden plan that appears in each chapter to show how to apply the topics at hand. A practical, logical approach to the planning, design, and installation of a garden, this volume will be an invaluable resource for students, landscape professionals, and garden designers.
