One of the most important aspects of garden design has always been the relationship between a garden and its surrounding landscape. Gardens Without Boundaries looks at the ways in which today’s leading garden and landscape designers have concealed boundaries, disguised edges, or brought “nature” up to the house, in order to link private gardens to the wider terrain beyond. It is a comprehensive work that not only challenges preconceptions of contemporary garden design, but provides fresh ideas and inspiration to garden owners everywhere.

One of the most important aspects of garden design has always been the relationship between a garden and its surrounding landscape. This book looks at the way in which today's leading garden and landscape designers have concealed boundaries, disguised edges or brought "nature" up to the house, in order to link private gardens to the landscape beyond. With small urban gardens designers have also invented trompe l'oeil effects to make cramped spaces look larger, while other designers have devised new ways of mimicking nature, and land artists have "adopted" the existing landscape and created gardens as temporary events. Including examples of gardens from all over the world, this book challenges preconceptions of contemporary garden design as well as providing ideas and inspiration for any gardener.
