The Natural Garden (out of print)
A sumptuous and inspirational landscape design book that looks at how award-winning landscape designer Xanthe White's signature style, which she calls 'the wild garden' can be applied to flower, native, rural, dry, inner city, productive, subtropical, coastal, and small city wall and roof gardens. Warmly and expertly written and lavishly illustrated with photos and Xanthe' own hand-drawn plans, the book also contains best-plant guides for each garden type as well as growing and composting advice. It's almost as good as having Xanthe call round for a consultation!
