Editorial Reviews


A well-designed garden, be it 10ft square or an acre or more, not only gives the owner a great deal of pleasure but adds value to any property. But getting the design right can be difficult and the smaller the space, the harder it tends to become. Renowned garden designer David Stevens sets out to assist those with cramped plots make the most of them and enhance their home with the addition of a well-thought out green oasis. From contemporary to classical, Stevens is not averse to the inclusion of modern materials such as corrugated iron, cement and ornate mulches which feature together with the more traditional wood, stone and terracotta. He shows how simplicity can be the key to a small garden and, conversely, the use of large plants. Normally thought too big for such small areas, he demonstrates how they offer height and perspective to the plot, concealing boundaries and thereby visually enlarging the space. Covering design, planting, ornamentation, water features, lighting and more, this is a comprehensive guide to making the most of a tiny garden. Beautifully photographed and informatively written,this is a superior, professional look at a subject often glossed over or over-glossed in other publications. - Lucy Watson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
