4.0 out of 5 stars A neat little book 23 Oct 2008
This book offers you little ideas and tips for you to use in your own garden. It isn't meant as a design guide, nor has it got plans and planting list. If you want that, then look at the other garden design books.

It's presented with lovely photos and inspires you to make small changes by using different colours, plants and materials.

If anything, it's just a really nice little book to look at.

5.0 out of 5 stars bringing the inside out 12 Jan 2009
By loulou
This book should be looked upon as an accessories guide for your outside space, be it a trendy suburban balcony or cottage garden. It is a feast of beautiful photos (by the fantastic Pia Tryde) featuring utilitarian furniture, accessories and plants for your garden. There are no latin names, planting guides or gardening tips here.
It has quite a 'country' feel to it, photos of weathered sheds, beautiful old tools and vintage watering cans sit amidst clipped box plants in galvanised buckets and brightly painted chairs.
It's not a gardening book, nor an interior one, it sits somewhere inbetween, treat it as an outside space style guide for a certain simple rustic look and you can't go wrong, it really is lovely.

1.0 out of 5 stars Coffee table book 30 Jun 2003
If your looking for a book that gives you some informative information on any aspect of gardening then this is not the book for you. I must admit it has does some wonderful photographs but thats it. As a garden design student this book was a waste of money.
