1001 Gardens is an extraordinary showcase of the best examples of man's artistic taming of nature from the world's most outstanding landscape gardeners. From the famous gardens of the Moorish Alhambra to hidden gems, such as the Leichtag family's Healing Garden, created for patients at the San Diego Children's Hospital, this lavishly illustrated guide will delight both lovers of natural beauty and gardeners alike. Covering the entire globe, the guide presents the very best example of every gardening style, whether it is the inspirational European floral display of impressionist painter Claude Monet's garden at Giverny in France or the exuberant diversity of the lush tropical gardens of Bali. Everywhere, gardens speak of the intimate relationship between man and the environment. Worldwide and from person to person our conceptions of beauty may differ, but gardeners are united in their desire to create visions of heaven on earth, places that stimulate the imagination and restore the spirit.
