Product Description

Review

Small gardens are becoming more and more common in these days of intensive house-building and the problems that arise in trying to work out how to tackle such small plots and make the most of them can appear quite daunting. Part of the RHS Practical series, this gives all the help and advice that you will need within it's highly illustrated, informative pages. Teaching you how to assess your plot, work out what you want from it and then implement it, author John Moreland shares his expert advice: whether you want an area for entertainment, relaxing, a children's play area or all of these combined, he offers innovative design plans alongside clear instructions on how to do the physical work. Stylistically he covers modern, contemporary, classical and more. Lawns, borders, water features, patios, pergolas, all looked at in context with the overall design to ensure you don't end up with a mish-mash of styles. Another essential addition to this Practical series, a set of which should be on every gardener's bookshelf. - Lucy Watson

Format: Paperback
This RHS practical guide covers small gardens. I really like these guides. They cover an awful lot in a relatively slim volume, and I've found that there is a lot to be learned from each one. They are written in an easy to understand way, and not only give some great new ideas, but also show how to execute some of these ideas.

This particular guide covers:

* designing a small garden
* twenty small garden plans
* basic design techniques

I do not have a small garden - I have a huge rambling garden which I am seeing as a project at the moment - it has been overgrown for far too long. But within the large garden I am creating some smaller enclosed areas, and this is where this book makes interesting reading. Especially in terms of creating a new seating area where we can barbecue and entertain friends in the summer. This book has given me lots of ideas and tentative plans.

Recommended.

This was bought as part of a Christmas gift for my youngest daughter. She was absolutely delighted with not only the book itself but also the fact that it was from RHS, so she felt she could absolutely trust every word.
