Designing Gardens with Plant Shapes introduces a new visual approach to planting design. Instead of relying heavily on plant knowledge, it provides a practical, hands-on method for the design of planting, so that the final garden suits your needs and style. This innovative book sets out the principles of planting design, introduces the nine plant shapes and a selection of appropriate plants, and explains how all gardeners - from the novice to the experienced - can achieve a beautiful and rewarding garden.

Topics covered include:

  • Theoretical aspects of planting design
  • The nine plant shapes described and plant libraries suggested
  • The plant shapes method explained with practical drawing exercises
  • Advice on using colour in a planting scheme
  • Examples of three-dimensional planting design schemes
  • Guide to the planting process
