By Thomas Hobbs

In "Shocking Beauty," visionary garden impresario Thomas Hobbs offers his original and trend-setting treatises of garden design. In inspiring essays, Hobbs uses examples from exceptional gardens throughout North America and Europe to demonstrate how a garden freed from the bonds of conventional design can result in a space of singular and startling allure. Hobbs suggests that nature is the best teacher for blending color, texture and plant species to create "shocking beauty" in a garden, and he uses luxuriant and striking photography to demonstrate his thought-provoking theories.
