From the cover: “In Pergolas, Arbours, Gazebos and Follies, David Stevens, garden architect and horticultural consultant, looks in turn at each of these fascinating garden features. A delightful selection of colour photographs, drawings and plans illustrate the important role these elements have played in the development of the English garden and show how, in the right context, they can be scaled down to play an equally vital role within the framework of today’s much smaller gardens.
Whether framing or screening a view, emphasizing a sitting area, defining a path, as a vehicle for a huge range of climbing plants, or simply as outrageous flights of fantasy on the part of landowners with a sense of humour, pergolas, arbours, gazebos and follies all have relevance to contemporary gardens. This fas-cinating book, packed with practical detail, will provide inspiration to anyone with an interest in garden design in all its many aspects.”
