An invaluable reference for students or designers.' - Katie Campbell, Garden Design Journal 'This book provides a good amount of basic material and provides a sound introduction to garden history. Since the book highlights that there is still an incredible amount of riches to explore, it ought to be able to inspire further reading and research as well.' - Jan Woudstra, The Garden, the journal of the Royal Horticultural Society a'...takes readers on a tour of gardens, garden design and the reasons for making gardens throughout the centuries.' - Suzanne Hively, Cleveland Plain Dealer 'The scope of this book is vast...a remarkable achievement.'- Tim Richardson, Daily Telegraph 'Gorgeous, yes, but Garden History is no mere coffee-table tome of all style and no substance...Reading Garden History is like taking a tour of a world-class museum, personally guided by an erudite and engaging curator' - Chan Stroman , Human Flower Project
