Highly successful author and innovative designer Stafford Cliff has visited hundreds of gardens in the course of his travels over the last forty years all over the world, taking photographs and making notes. With his designer's eye and experience, he has created a revelatory work - a unique sourcebook of the very best ideas providing choices and inspiration for every single garden dilemma and possibility, from colour and planting to hard surfaces and features. Now in a new compact format and fantastic price, the book is even more accessible to gardeners. For every new choice they wish to make, for every change they wish to introduce, there is a complete wealth of options - the plants, the path, the paving, the pots - they are all shown. From ornamental gates to water features, sundials and beyond, a myriad of images are shown to fascinate, inspire and enthral the reader. The book is simply stunning: a veritable visual jigsaw delights the eye with the quirky set alongside the classic, the modern set against the traditional. And, as practical as it is inspiring, there is a directory of suppliers to help the reader realize their vision.
