"Gardens of Straight Lines" explores the lives of the great formalist gardeners, from Le Notre at Versailles to the rational English minimalism of contemporary designer Christopher Bradley-Hole. "Gardens of Curves" begins with that great exponent of the English landscape garden, "Capability" Brown, and leads to the extraordinary Brazilian designer Roberto Burle Marx. Finally, "Gardens of Plantsmanship" moves from the father of naturalistic planting, William Robinson, to the sweeping prairies of New York"s favourite Dutch designer, Piet Oudolf.
