An updated version of this book is now available as European Gardens (2011), also by Tom Turner.  Expanding into other regions are Asian Gardens (2010) and the forthcoming British Gardens, both also by Turner and published by Routledge.

Tom Turner, well-known teacher and writer in landscape architecture, garden design and garden history here explores more than 150 gardens over four millennia of Western garden design. He considers the why, the what, the how and the where of garden design by tracing the development of gardens through history and across social, political and philosophical boundaries. Fully illustrated throughout, each chapter critically examines a particular type of garden both as part of a wider socio-political context and as an aesthetic entity, asking how the design of each garden reflects the philosophical approach of its creator. Inspirational, reflective and informative, this book brings together knowledge and understanding from a diverse range of related interests to add depth and breadth to a fascinating subject.

Review:

'The apt choice of quotations will provide an invaluable reference for garden historians and illustrates that garden design is so much more than plants and drawings ... Although this book will not fit in your pocket, put it in your suitcase as an essential reference for serious garden expeditions.' – Historic Gardens Review
