An inspirational guide to garden design. Fun, fun, fun!
on 19 July 2000
Robin Williams'books are the best in their genre. In this title, the author thouroghly explains the basics of garden design and offers a multitude of ready-made garden plans, all beautifully illustrated and easily adaptable to any garden, particularly smaller ones. All types of "problem" sites are covered; the triangular plot, the front garden, the very narrow plot and the sloping plot. Every possible garden style, as well as examples of special features such as fences, pergolas, steps etc are also featured. The author tries to de- mystify garden design - anyone can do it, and with this book and the million insipirational ideas that come with it, garden design has never been this fun and easy.
I can't say enough good things about this book, every gardener should own one. It's worth its weight in gold.
