Book / Great Garden Design
The Society of Garden Designers (SGD) is pleased to introduce Great Garden Design – a showcase of more than 300 of the best garden designs of the last 10 years from some of their leading members. Authored by Ian Hodgson and published by Frances Lincoln on 5 March 2015, Great Garden Design is a survey of contemporary garden design showcasing the flair and innovation that the Society’s professional garden designers can bring to the smallest and most unpromising of plots.
Comprising planting schemes, style guidance, practical insight and expert knowledge the book will inspire new ideas for every situation, taste, budget and size of garden.
Great Garden Design will feature the work of some of the Society’s established members including Tom Stuart-Smith, Luciano Guibbilei, Dan Pearson, Andy Sturgeon Joe Swift and Charlotte Rowe alongside lesser-known designers whose innovative work deserves wider recognition. The book examines the creative process of working with a designer from concept to completion and demonstrates how a professional designer can help to transform your garden space.
Encompassing garden rooms, ornamental details, styles and planting ideas, the book will appeal to every forward-looking garden owner, whether they manage a small or medium sized garden, a roof terrace, balcony or courtyard space. It offers cutting edge solutions for those seeking an entirely new look as well, as key details that can make the most of your plot.
