It will present 35 to 40 spectacular contemporary gardens in the Philippines, both big and small, situated in and around the Metropolitan Manila area and the nearby provinces of Laguna, Batangas and Tagaytay. The vast majority of the gardens are in private homes. It will introduce a contemporary gardening style that has been evolving in the Philippines over the past decade as talented designers have come into their own - not to mention all the talented homeowners who are making this happen. These designers and owners are working wonders with the widespread use of stones and indigenous flora. Some work along Oriental lines, others follow Western models. All are finding their own original niches in attempting to define a unique tropical gardening style. There is no one school of gardening in the Philippines - much as there is no one term to describe the Filipinos themselves - who are a hybrid of many cultural influences. This book aims to celebrate "The New Tropical Garden."
