"Exceptionally priced and beautifully shot, an illustrated survey of 100 contemporary gardens from the early 1920s to now - an obvious labour of love. The price alone should propel this exceptional book into the charts."-The Bookseller
"A new sourcebook of ideas that cannot fail to inspire lovers of garden design... While the gardens have all had their share of controversy and criticism, the book encourages us to understand the role they have had in influencing more mainstream design."-Homes & Gardens
