The Thoughtful Gardener: An Intelligent Approach To Garden Design by Jinny Blom is a gorgeously photographed and illustrated book which captures the authors overall design philosophy.
A prolific designer, Jinny Blom embraces a wide variety of styles, from formal walled gardens to contemporary installations. What defines her work is her skill with plants and her ability to create a garden that responds to the history of the site and the wider landscape. In this book, Jinny shares her insight into the creative process she has developed while designing more than 250 gardens around the world.
For Jinny, design is more a matter of intelligence and appropriateness than imposing a particular style. As such, her approach can be applied to any garden. You can take inspiration from Jinny's principles and apply them to your own garden, whatever the shape or size.
This would make a beautiful gift for anyone interested in garden design and landscaping.
