About the author (1990)

John Brookes has often been described as the world's most influential landscape designer, both because the gardens he has created for his clients and his teaching of the art spans five continents, and because his books have been bestsellers since his groundbreaking classic Room Outside was first published in 1969. Brookes' own training among the giants of 20th-century landscape design and his international career have given him a unique perspective on our changing attitude to the garden, and he has consistently shown us the best of the new landscaping trends. Natural Landscapes is a must-have resource for gardeners who want to improve their environment, and also for anyone who cares about good landscape design.
