An Intelligent Approach to Garden Design

The most romantic, creative person in garden design I know.' Piet Oudolf`Jinny's genius is to marry a beautiful vision to an extraordinary empathy with the landscape into which that vision will fit, resulting in a pastoral harmony second to none' - Victoria, Lady Getty A prolific designer, Jinny Blom embraces a wide variety of styles, from formal walled gardens to contemporary installations. What defines her work is her skill with plants and her ability to create a garden that responds to the history of the site and the wider landscape.

In this book, Jinny shares her insight into the creative process she has developed while designing more than 250 gardens around the world.The gardens Jinny creates are as different as their owners and their locations.

Small gardens are very intimate and have to work efficiently in order to be pleasing. An Oxfordshire garden of rooms is constructed from nothing, creating a new garden with an old soul. There are modern takes on traditional forms.

But all these gardens share a commitment to beautiful craftsmanship and considered planting. Structure and detail are important, and receive close attention. The styles vary considerably - logical, calm, beautiful, romantic, naturalistic, formal, sometimes spare - but the principles remain firm.

Jinny designs for the long term, with consideration for the environment; these gardens are built to last.Reflecting Jinny`s highly individual character, there is plenty of wit and quirkiness alongside the expert knowledge, and it will appeal to the widest audience of garden lovers.

Thoughtful and beautiful, yet practical and informative, this book marries artistry with functionality.
