This sumptuous new book is packed with creative ideas for making a successful outside courtyard space. An introductory section gives practical advice on assessing a site, freshening up existing tired elements and basic planting techniques. Successive chapters on specific styles each look at flooring, walls and screens, plants and containers, ornament and water features, and lighting. Each chapter includes a case study with a detailed colour plan explaining the dynamics of the designed space, and how specific elements were achieved. The plant directory then gives a comprehensive listing of options, each entry complete with propagation, growth patterns, and ideal conditions. The final section on maintenance shows how to keep your courtyard looking its best, including deadheading, watering and repainting fencing and trellis.
