An inspirational and practical resource, this guide covers five main sections: Seating and Eating considers a variety of styles of garden seat; Garden Houses examines outdoor buildings from sheds to dovecotes, pavilions and play houses; Patios, Paths and Ponds illustrates how these details can transform even the smallest garden; Supports and Dividers explores focal points and adapting areas of the garden for different purposes; and Containers looks at how pots, tubs and window boxes can alter your garden layout with ease, rotating plant schemes with seasons. Each section offers sound advice about how these features can bring the various aspects of a garden harmoniously together, illustrated with photographs from stunning gardens around the world. The title includes 30 Conran designed projects, specially commissioned photography and over 130 practical illustrations to enable you to build everything from simple decking to a striking summerhouse, an awning or a garden bench. Finally, a concise directory of tools, materials and techniques furnishes you with the practical know-how to ensure complete success.

About the Author:

Terence Conran is one of the world's best-known designers, restaurateurs and retailers. In the 1960s he founded Habitat - the chain of homeware stores that brought good, modern design within reach of the general population for the very first time.

Over the subsequent 50 years Terence built another group of companies centred around design, retailing, restaurants and hotels. Today, Conran owns restaurants and shops in eight cities throughout the world and a design business serving many international clients that includes architecture and interior design, product and graphic design and brand licensing.

In January 2011 Conran began working with Marks & Spencer in the UK, designing an exclusive range of homewares for the store. In 2012 Conran signed a deal to collaborate with US retail giant jcpenney to design an exclusive range of furniture, lighting and accessories for the home. The initial collection launched in spring 2013 into 300 jcpenney stores throughout the US and there will be new ranges launching each spring and autumn.

Terence was knighted for his services to design in 1983 and has been provost of the Royal College of Art in London. In 1982 he opened the very first museum in the world dedicated to design, which is now the celebrated Design Museum in London, due to move to new premises in 2015 thanks to a massive expansion programme.
