From the Publisher:

The Path-Where Garden Design Begins
"'Garden Paths' is the kind of book that makes you want to rush out and work in the garden." ------Miami Herald

"...beautiful.... This large, glossy book is filled with color photos and instructive drawings that include ideas from both near and far." ------Greenville News

"Garden Paths" is divided into three distinct parts: Model Gardens, Paths to Your New Garden and Making the Path. Five appendices provide useful resource material.

Part I takes a close look at how paths are used in four different model gardens. In the course of describing how these paths work, garden design principles and methods are presented, discussed and shown.

Part II examines gardens around the world that solve practical problems in aesthetic ways. This section provides inspiration for gardeners in urban, suburban, and rural settings. Organized by construction material, it gives you many ideas, options and projects, whether you plan to do the work yourself or hire a professional.

Part III is a wholly practical how-to section with detailed guidelines for design and construction, and advice on what to plant in and around paths of all kinds.

"Garden Paths" includes:

· over 125 dazzling color photos

· elegant drawings illustrating design concepts and techniques for laying paths

· detailed information on cut stone, brick, concrete, stepping-stone, wood, crushed stone and lawn paths

Synopsis:

The path is where garden design begins. This guide covers history and design as well as practical how-to information on a wide variety of styles and construction materials. Included are raised boardwalks, woodland walkways, stepping stones and meadow paths.
