In Collins Garden Planning & Design, leading garden designer David Stevens explains the fundamentals of good design which you can apply to suit your garden, whatever its size or location.
The wealth of information about garden design in magazines, books and TV programmes can often be confusing. In Collins Garden Planning & Design, leading garden designer David Stevens cuts through the confusion with a book that will stand the test of time and fashion. Whatever the size, location or shape of your garden, and whether you are starting from scratch of adapting what you already have, Collins Garden Planning & Design contains all you need to know.
After a detailed look at the elements that make up a garden design, the last section in the book contains beautifully illustrated garden plans which provide a wealth of ideas which can be used in their entirety or in part to suit a particular garden. This includes plans for:
• a border for year-round interest • creating a theme • 3 treatments for 1 space • a low-maintenance garden • a family garden • 2 front gardens • a roof terrace • a dog-leg garden • a long, narrow garden • a sloping site • a formal garden • a wrap-around garden
