The ISBN appears on the dust jacket only. Publisher's description: A long-awaited second book from the Miami-based landscape architect lauded by the Wall Street Journal for "dreaming up dense, thickly forested canopies that give way to modern high rises and million-dollar residences." Color and texture burst forth at every turn in gardens by landscape architect Raymond Jungles. Sculptural bromeliads, swaying palms, delicate epiphytes, and vibrant orchids combine to immerse visitors in rich, lush environments that captivate the eye with layer upon layer of interest. Taking cues first from a site's topography and conditions, Jungles combines tapestries of plants with unique water elements that enhance what nature has offered--swaths of grasses and succulents direct the eye toward unspeakably romantic Caribbean vistas, intriguingly pitted and mossy oolitic limestone monoliths create trickling waterfalls and hidden grottoes, and innovative combinations of native trees surround sinuous and calming infinity pools.
