The book includes around 117 entries, mostly one or two pages but a few up to four or five, ranging from big concepts (like the 'color theme garden') to concrete design elements ('mounds, islands, and pyramids'). What makes the book work are the terrific photos; each entry has multiple photos (with short, clear captions) showing different applications of the same element. The text emphasizes garden design as a visual art, with frequent references to techniques used in French Impressionist painters' gardens, which I found helpful. ( )
