Description

A sourcebook of approximately 200 easy-to-follow detailed structural plans of private gardens for gardeners to copy or reinterpret for their own gardens. The main features of all the plans can be easily adapted to different size gardens and climatic regions. Because good design is the key to a successful garden, this book has collected together some of the best of today's structural garden plans, providing practical solutions for sites of varying size and shape in both town and country. After an introduction that explains the basics of garden design, the book features about 200 structural garden plans divided into thematic chapters. The plans include those for problem sites, such as small, narrow, shaded, or sloping gardens, as well as key garden features such as steps, decking, boundaries, water features, lighting, and ornaments, and key planting. The book also includes a glossary of terms and techniques, as well as a directory of the designers' contact details.show more
