I am delighted to see this masterwork of French garden art and technique translated into English. Robert Mallet lays out the elements of garden composition so clearly and illustrates them so well that I cannot imagine a gardener failing to profit from this book. Wherever you garden it will open your eyes.- Hugh Johnson
