Product Details


“An essential for anyone interested in the cutting edge of landscape and garden design . . . Smith’s own introductions to the projects are concise, unpretentious and mercifully jargon-free, while John Beardsley’s measured introduction puts the work in its context without resort to flattery or hype.”
—The Daily Telegraph

“If there’s one thing for certain about the gardens designed by landscape architect Ken Smith, it’s that you’ll never forget the ones you’ve experienced, whether in person or on the printed page.”

“The monograph breaks new ground in landscape architecture books with its integrated use of text, graphic layout, and photography of built projects, which are structurally formulated to reinforce the author’s design approach . . . A lovely book, extremely informative, well photographed and shows the range of work.”
—Association of Landscape Architects 2010 Professional Awards Jury
