This book explores the defining moments in garden design. Through profiles of 100 of the most influential gardens, Linda Chisholm explores how social, political, and economic influences shaped garden design principles. The book is organized chronologically and by theme, starting with the medieval garden Alhambra and ending with the modern naturalism of the Lurie Garden.

Sumptuously illustrated, The History of Landscape Design in 100 Gardens is a comprehensive resource for garden designers and landscape architects, design students, and garden history enthusiasts.

This book accompanies the upcoming exhibition "Follies: Architectural Whimsy in the Garden" in the Winterthur Garden, April 1, 2018 – January 5, 2020. Escape into the imaginative world of garden follies, Winterthur’s first-ever exhibit of whimsical and classic garden structures – all set within Henry Francis du Pont’s majestic garden! Thirteen fantastic structures await exploration – from a Gothic-inspired tower, an Ottoman tent, and neoclassical follies to a Chinese pavilion, American summerhouses, a faerie cottage, and creative contemporary follies. • Contains many Follies, including several that inspired Winterthur's Garden Follies.
