Stunning examples of contemporary gardens around the world.

More and more, gardens are considered an extension of our homes. Whether it is a private garden or a park in a city, properly planning the individual parts of the final product is an absolute necessity. From the list of plants to the strategic importance of layout and other elements (including furniture, lighting, and accessories), creating an exciting and inspiring aesthetic requires good organization and preparation if one is to take full advantage of what the outdoors has to offer.

This book presents a selection of green spaces that surround us, beginning with our homes and extending to vegetated spaces that form part of our cities. Gardens, terraces, balconies, courtyards, parks, plazas, avenues, and vegetated buildings are some of the examples presented to inspire and motivate the reader to adapt the ideas within these pages to their own homes and backyards. Hundreds of full-color images showcase a wide variety of gardening methods and aesthetic tastes, and the advice offered will help you to design your own garden and encourage you to think of the idea of a garden in new ways.

Without a doubt, the examples included in this book are an invaluable guide to appreciate the beautiful green spaces all around us. Learning to value our immediate environment is the best assurance for a sustainable future whether we live in the countryside or city. Modern Garden Design is a wonderful addition to the bookshelf of all gardeners as well as anyone who appreciates the beauty that nature has to offer.
