The book is divided into three main sections. "Assessing Your Needs" encourages the reader to focus on their requirements and to determine their priorities in terms of making the most of their space. "Solutions by Area" looks at a range of different spaces from balconies to basements, rooftops to courtyards, and highlights the particular considerations of each. This chapter also illustrates inspiring design ideas, always focusing on the practical, for example, 'Do you want to make the most of your view or do you need to screen off an eyesore?'. "Design Details" focuses on elements such as walls, flooring, lighting, and furniture. Feature boxes and text offer design advice and planting suggestions, and clarify what is achievable through DIY and what needs a professional. They also include low-maintenance and drought-friendly ideas.
