This major international work, composed of more than 600 entries, will prove to be an indispensable reference for garden historians; teachers and students of archaeology, garden history, and landscape architecture; professional and amateur gardeners; and curious general readers alike. A wide range of topics are explored, including important people in the history of gardening and landscaping (Pliny, Roberto Burle Marx); specific sites, both historical and existing (Villa Adriana, Stowe); surveys of types and styles of gardens as well as of gardening movements (Informal Garden, Arts and Crafts Gardening); traditions of specific geographic regions (Africa, pre-Colombian Gardens); and different gardening materials and techniques (Wardian Case, Plant Training). Replete with both black-and-white and colour photographs, as well as with dozens of line drawings illustrating plans, techniques, and tools.
