Synopsis

This is a practical guide to successful gardening in smaller spaces, with step-by-step techniques and more than 700 beautiful photographs. Everything you need to know when planning a small garden, and how to put your ideas into action. It includes examples of many garden styles, with features on lawns, walls, fences, patios, trelliswork, arches and pergolas, ponds and rock gardens, and small-scale kitchen gardens. It shows you how to design and plant ornamental flower and foliage beds and borders, as well as gardens that will provide year-round interest and quick results. Whether you have a small town garden or even a tiny balcony or veranda, there are many ways in which you can create stylish effects and produce an impression of length and depth. This book is packed with clever ideas for patios and front gardens, basements and backyards, as well as providing solutions for awkwardly shaped gardens. There are projects for adding decorative elements such as ornaments and containers, and also recommendations for soft landscaping - the plants - that provides the shape and texture.Combining beautiful photographs, practical advice and inspirational ideas, this is the perfect reference book for all gardeners.
