In this book, Williams highlights his most impressive projects to date which includes the revitalization of several historically landmarked homes and properties. He often integrates both native and exotic plants, builds opulent swimming pools, and brings in mature trees and stone work, all of which result in stunning gardens that are brimming with lush, tropical foliage. More than just plantings, other design elements featured include whimsical pool cabanas, a vertical garden wall, a loggia inspired by the architecture of Bermuda, Moorish-tiled fountains, and stone-paved motor courts. In showing the transformations and process of these monumental design projects, the book highlights Williams's penchant for sustainability, and his efforts to honor the natural, existing landscape while never compromising the design to create spectacularly distinctive gardens.
