Synopsis

All gardeners dream of creating a garden that is their vision of perfection - whether that is a structured plot complete with ordered tree avenues and immaculate rose beds, or a simple, inviting space for unwinding or entertaining. But just how do you go about turning that vision into reality? Matthew Wilson's Making a Garden demystifies garden design, using real case studies to demonstrate how the ideas and techniques behind them can be translated to your garden at home. In addition, Matthew gives detailed guidance on successful planting. Starting with the initial assessment and planning stages, Matthew reveals the thinking that lies behind great garden design. He discusses the issues that preoccupy all gardeners: planning, providing for different needs, maximising space and working with nature. He goes on to show readers how to transform their space, covering topics such as enhancing light levels and choosing plants for colour, texture and form. Alluring colour photography and detailed hand-drawn plans act as inspirational visual references, while straightforward action plans show you how to create your perfect outdoor space.

Providing all the ideas and practical information that you need, Matthew Wilson's Making A Garden is an informative, engaging and essential guide to creating the garden of your dreams.
