John Brookes is undoubtedly the doyen of modern garden designers. Since going into practice in the 1960s, he has taught, lectured and communicated to an ever wider public through his books. Garden Design, first published in 1991, quickly established itself as the designer's bible.

Whether you want to redesign your existing garden or are creating a new garden from scratch, John Brookes takes you step-by-step through every stage in creating your own designs - from the easy-to-learn skills for measuring your garden and drawing up a plan, to judging scale, using pattern and siting plants. Using specially commissioned full-colour photographs, drawings and plans he shows you how to give your garden a coherent style by the appropriate choice of surfaces, enclosures and accessories, and demonstrates how to fully integrate plants successfully into your design.
