Gardens are more than just displays of immaculate horticulture: for many, they function as an extra room which all the family can enjoy - somewhere to entertain, to relax, to play in. Creating a garden that caters for all these functions, that provides a home for people as well as plants, requires thoughtful design, especially if space is limited. This book is a practical guide to creating outdoor living spaces. Whether you have a large country garden or a tiny city roof terrace, step by step projects and case studies from around the world show you how real families have solved similar problems to those you might encounter. It also shows you how to design child-proof and safe garden features, as well as how to create new areas of interest from decorating for a summer party to building a sandpit.
