This volume contains a compilation of photographs from a series of books, published during the last 20 years on beautiful gardens in Europe. Some of these sites are no longer available, so the viewer has an opportunity to see changes in garden design over time. The contents are divided into different sections: classic gardens, contemporary gardens, villa gardens, country gardens, pools, and gardens of the south (Mediterranean). Credit for the individual or firm responsible for each project (architecture and styling) is noted in the index. The sites are remarkably inspirational, as the gardens differ so much in style across the landscape of the continent. This impressive work is a valuable source of information for architects, garden designers, and other professionals.
