Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Containers and trellises give your garden structure and beauty, but they really only come in two types: flimsy and precious. If you find yourself wishing for garden accessories that support your plants in style without breaking your budget, the solution is simple: make them yourself.
Trellises, Planters & Raised Beds shows you how easy it is for anyone, regardless of skill level, to create lovely garden projects for just a fraction of the cost of products found in stores (but the 50 unique designs featured here can’t be found in stores, anyway). From the rustic charm of projects built with freshly cut branches, to a plant stand fabricated from galvanized buckets, to a classically elegant wood obelisk, you are sure to find a bushel of plans that you love. And best of all, these designs were created with gardeners in mind, so they can be built without a shop full of fancy tools.

A few common hand tools and the desire to make something unique and beautiful for your garden are all you need.

Nice publication, The trellises and planters are a little more art deco than just plain garden functional. Plans shown are more diagramatic than real plans. I guess it's more of an "idea" book than a hard core "how to" book.

This is a great book! I like the different patterns for raised beds. There is something for every size yard. The trellises are wonderful and it is great to have materials lists for that trellis you saw in the store that looked simple but cost a fortune. I have already got the materials to do two projects and I can't wait to get started!

I have several garden project books but this one by far is my favorite. It's very comprehensive in the range of projects from very easy to more complicated. Definitely has something for everyone. Some ideas are easily made with things found around the yard or home, while others do require a more extensive shopping list. The projects are very attractive but not so "artsy" that the average person couldn't create an item just as pictured.

I especially like the materials lists at the beginning of each project which list building materials as well as tools needed. The directions are easy to read and follow, plus good photos show each step of a project.

This book is a worthy addition to any gardener's book shelf and well worth the purchase price.

I liked this book because it has great ideas for garden enthusiasts such as myself. I would recommend the book to anyone who is good with tools as well, and would have no trouble determining measurements, and using drills, and what not. I should have looked more closely at the fact that this is more a DIY-type book with some ideas for the yard. I basically thumbed through it for that purpose.

This book is just packed with photos of beautiful garden features, whether they're trellises, planters or even attractive raised beds. And most of them include plans -- descriptions, cut lists, tools needed, step-by-step photos! Just really very well done.

I love so many of the projects in this book, but what I really love about them is that they come with alternative ideas. So, you don't have to make one exactly like the model pictured but can springboard to different looks and styles. Being of the ooh-something-shiny persuasion, I found myself bouncing all over the place with the ideas generated.

Many of the projects are fairly easy, and where some are more involved they occasionally give you a simpler, albeit more rustic approach if you don't have the skills or the tools to complete the more involved version. Really one of the best garden decor books I've seen, and I have quite a collection of them, so I know what I'm talking about. Where most books of this type are filled with great pictures of Joe and Mary's garden or what Hilary did with that really quirky brass garbage pail, IOW things the average human will never be able to duplicate, "Trellises, Planters & Raised Beds" gives you all the info you need to complete all but a very small number of the items pictured.

If you want to spruce up your garden or just create a focal point for added interest, this is the book to buy. Excellent!
