He takes us through the process in meticulous detail, leading us from the initial site plan to the glory of the finished garden, and illustrating each chapter with photographs and plans from his own portfolio, including Albemarle House in Charlottesville, Virginia; a cottage in Pennsylvania; farmhouses in Mirmande in south-eastern France; Los Moritos in Trujillo; The Garden of Surprises in Burghley, Lincolnshire; Penshurst Place, Kent; Holkham Hall, Norfolk; the Royal Hospital, Chelsea; his own garden at Silverstone Farm, Norfolk; and the garden of the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace.
