About this Item

. Hardcover. David & Charles, 1973, 1st edn. with dust cover, in near-mint condition; black cloth in mint condition; 160pp with more than 400 photos. This book shows in a step-by-step photographic sequence exactly how to construct a garden, starting from the bare ground, proceeding through planning, cultivation and basic planting of trees, shrubs and hedges. Masonry work such as paths and patios and walls of different kinds is explained; fencing and other wooden structures are described together with information about hanging gates, the construction of screening, furniture, pergolas and rustic work. And there are substantial sections on making your own concrete blocks and mouldings. The combination of descriptive text, detailed captions, and comprehensive picture coverage make this an excellent guide for the amateur who may have had no previous experience. But the work shown, if carried out carefully, should reach a high standard. So whether you are starting with a weed-covered patch and ambitious plans, or simply wish to modify or add to an established garden, this book will be a valuable source of reference to which you'll find yourself turning again and again. 11x8¾". . . . .
