Silvery tones of a scented garden designed for moonlight can add new dimensions to summer evenings on your patio. And careful choices of herbs can yield shades of burnished bronzes and mauves in the garden throughout the rigors of winter. These are just two samples of the information contained in more than fifty plans for novice and professional gardener alike. Herbs are already well known for their abilities to flavor, scent, dye, and medicate; in addition, when properly integrated with their surroundings they can greatly enhance the landscape. The plans offered here represent a wide range of possibilities--historic and private, large and small, modest and elaborate--that are easily adapted to one’s needs. Designs created by landscape architects and members of the Herb Society of America were redrafted especially for this book. Each plan offers dimensions, structural details for paths, walls, hedges, and decorating elements in addition to full commentary and a plant list. A selection of the Garden Book Club and the Architects and Planners Book Club.
