Summary

Find inspiration and fresh ideas with this beautifully photographed garden design book.

In Shocking Beauty, visionary garden impresario Thomas Hobbs offers his original and trendsetting treatises on garden design. In inspiring essays such as "Portable drams", "Staging Incidents" 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. Hobbs suggests that nature is the best teacher for blending color, texture and plant species to create "shocking beauty" in a garden.
