This is a 1911 guide to landscape gardening by Edward Kemp. This fantastic handbook contains al the information a novice needs to know concerning the creation of beautiful gardens and outdoor spaces. It looks at every aspect from design to finishing up, exploring rock gardens, a variety of different plants and shrubs, garden structures, water features, and much more. This book will be of utility to anyone with an interest in gardening, and it is not to be missed by collectors of vintage literature of this ilk. Contents include: "The Choice of a Place", "What to Avoid", "General Principles", "The Several Styles", "Practical Considerations", "Particular Objects", "Special Features", "Various Accessories", "Practical Directions", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the history of gardening.
