    DescriptionThis title lets you select ideas from a range of popular styles including Traditional Lines, Mediterranean Moods, Outdoor Rooms, Productive Spaces, Contemplative Retreats and Modern Zones. Case studies demonstrate real-life backyards to set your imagination alight, from an exotic Moroccan Nights location for entertaining in style, to a peaceful and enclosed urban oasis. It includes 12 step-by-step features that show techniques for creating a range of useful features - such as making a hot-pile compost bin, setting paving stones in gravel, creating a raised pool and building steps. It features over 280 diagrams and step-by-step and inspirational pictures of all kinds of patios, terraces and backyards. Here you will find the practical essentials and creative choices to make the most of your own patio, terrace or backyard. The first section explains how to plan your space, offering design advice and basic planting techniques. Six visual styles are introduced to whet your appetite, ranging from traditional and Mediterranean to productive and contemporary. Case studies include a formal terrace and a veranda with a self-sufficient backyard. The final section offers an extensive directory of planting choices. Over 280 photographs and a wealth of step-by-step instructions make this an accessible guide to creating your own, one-of-a-kind outside space.
