In Europe and America all the principal schools of garden design - Mannerist, Classical and Landscape invite the reader to share their delights. The ingenuity of the Italian garden is captured in stunning views, as are the grand vistas of Versailles, English landscaping, the smaller-scale pleasures of stream and pond gardens, and the finest gardens and designs by Roberto Burle Marx.

A section on arrangements to suit modern gardens, and listings of major water gardens worldwide complete the book. "The Water Garden" is not only a work to stimulate the gardener but also a sumptuous tribute to a great tradition which unites some of the most lavish and beautiful garden schemes ever devised.
