Thoroughly Enjoyable!

I found this book to be absolutely delightful, insightful, and a keeper. A real treasure of information and inspiration!

More than just a dry, step-one-step-two, how-to book.

Featuring interesting historical information, this book includes many backgrounds of formal gardens and topiary, offered as sidebars and archive drawings. There is extensive information on creating forms and shaping topiary. The illustrator's drawings echo the whimical sentiment of topiary, while the authors' offering of botanical information help the hobbyist understand the science of what they are doing. I cannot imagine anyone reading this book and not bursting with ideas to make their own gardens come to life.
