The Ultimate Garden Designer has so far sold over 200,000 copies to the UK and Export markets. In 2007 the Gardening genre was worth GBP17.6 million. Tim Newbury is an expert in the field of garden design, and has designed and built several gardens at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, all of which have won awards, including three Gold Medals. Garden design is now more popular than ever - annual attendance at the Chelsea Flower Show has had to be capped at 157,000 paying visitors to ensure visitor comfort (with day-tickets costing GBP41 each), and BBC Two's coverage of the show has attracted over 2.5 million viewers (over 11% of the viewing public).
Tim Newbury has won 3 gold medals at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. He has professional qualifications in architecture, landscape architecture and garden design.He is the author of many books on garden design, including The Garden Design Bible, The Small Garden Design Bible and Planting by Numbers.
Pick a style of garden (cottage, kitchen, family, etc.), see a plan complete with a planting list, add a feature such as a pool or pergola, and create your own unique garden. It may sound simplistic, but this book is leagues above the common garden design primer. The author has won three gold medals for design at London's renowned Chelsea Flower Show, and his good taste shows throughout. The design plans are all presented with variations based on size and shape. They also provide alternatives based on cost, style, or ease of construction and are key numbered to a planting list, which describes a selection of plants that give good value for the money. Besides the detailed sketches, there are superb photographs with the best depth of focus this reviewer has seen in any gardening book. Recommended for all gardening collections.‘Daniel Starr, Museum of Modern Art, New York
