This early work on Rock Gardens is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. The author has tried to make this new work comprehensive and thoroughly practical. It tells concisely, but in detail, how the Rock, Water and Bog gardens should be planned and constucted, planted and maintained. Illustrated throughout, the reader will find much of the information still usefull and practical today. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

Heritage gardens create huge management headaches. How does one preserve a garden designed for the enjoyment of the few when the advent of the many grinds it away to nothing? The answer, as presented in Heritage Gardens is a subterfuge: preserve the illusion of the created environment as originally conceived, but adjust it using more durable materials: plants and designs which require less cultivation. Of all the problems facing the heritage industry today, the managment of gardens and landscape environment create some of the greatest difficulties. This book seeks to provide some of the answers.
