A bestselling classic completely revised and updated

The Essential Garden Design Workbook has been the go-to guide for students, professionals, and any gardener passionate about well-designed outdoor spaces. Now, eminent designer-educator Rosemary Alexander has teamed up with rising design star Rachel Myers for a complete update. 

New garden plans, new photos and diagrams, and updated profiles of 50 top plants offer timely insights for today’s designers.

Detailed sections that lead you through the entire process—pre-design, concept, layout, planning, planting, and maintenance—are more relevant than ever. Invaluable for experienced pros and the next generation alike, this expanded classic is for anyone interested in designing beautiful, successful gardens.
