Full of stunning landscape photographs, this tropical gardening book is a delight for anyone interested in lavish gardens and new, fresh landscaping ideas.

Aimed at gardening enthusiasts, Tropical Gardens contains a rare glimpse into some of the most beautiful tropical gardens in the world today. It presents 42 spectacular contemporary gardens, both big and small.

The vast majority of the gardens are in private homes. Introducing a contemporary gardening style that has been evolving over the past decade, as well as more traditional formal styles, it traces the development of garden design in all its forms. Designers new and old are showcased along with a number of talented home owners. Experimenting with both indigenous and introduced species, use of hardscapes such as local stones and pavers, bonsai, clipped shrubs and water features, some work along Oriental lines, others follow Western models.

Tropical Gardens is a lovely introduction to tropical landscaping styles and a gardening aesthetic that combines the best of East and West with superior knowledge of plant cultivation and care. The book gives an insider's look at tropical garden design and landscape architecture that professionals and amateurs alike will love.
