Garden : Garden Designs to Enhance Your Life
A practical and beautiful book to help you create the garden you want. Many of us dream abut the perfect garden but have difficulty achieving a balance of planting and living space that really satisfies. Garden, written by a leading new Zealand landscape gardener, explains the process from the idea through to choosing plants and trees. Beautiful gardens are as much about shape and structure as they are about planting. Once you have decided on a style, the first step towards your dream garden is probably building or masonry work. Tony Murrell, a veteran of several television shows about gardening, discusses all aspects of garden design from seeking professional advice to making the most of your local garden centre. Twelve established gardens designed by Tony Murrell illustrate different approaches, from French Provencal style to subtropical oasis. A Book for people who want to create a garden that harmonises with their home and lifestyle.
