Gardening visionary Thomas Hobbs offers his trendsetting treatises on garden design in inspiring essays such as "Portable Drama" and "Zonal Denial." Hobbs uses examples from exceptional gardens throughout North America and Europe to demonstrate how a garden freed from the bonds of conventional design can result in spaces of singular and startling allure, and uses striking photographs to demonstrate his thought-provoking theories."A virtual call-to-arms, an impassioned plea to liberate ourselves from the confines of stodgy, traditional design and to create our gardens with an electrifying sense of drama and flamboyance." -Fine Gardening
