It ranges from the early Roman peristyle gardens as seen at Pompeii to the French Formal styles of Versailles to native plant gardens in the New World of Australia and North America. The book also contains a large collection of Chinese and Japanese gardens and many of the most influential and well-known gardens such as Sissinghurst, Giverny and Hidcote.
