Size is no object if you want to create a highly attractive, modern family garden. This book shows how even at the smallest scale it is possible to design your own beautiful and stylish outdoor space where both adults and children can have fun. It features fourteen gardens that are all very different in style and location – from a roof terrace and minimalist space in the city to a wildlife garden in the country. Several pages are dedicated to each scheme demonstrating in full how it is possible to achieve ′the look′, ′the features′ and ′the planting′ of the illustrated garden. As well as stunning photography, the book includes specially drawn plans. It provides a plethora of ideas for those who might want to overhaul their whole garden or just rethink a small part of it.

∗ Brilliant, beautiful, contemporary design ideas
∗ Lots of information and ideas about the perfect plants for you
∗ Great suggestions for garden features and hands–on projects to do in the garden

All laid out in a lively format ­ fun and easy to read

From the Author:

I wanted to write a gardening book for people who have
gardens but aren't gardeners. For people who want their gardens to look
good but don't want to sign up to the union. For people who don't really
even want to read a gardening book - I wanted it to be a treat to pick up,
a joy to leaf through, something to look forward to, just like a magazine.

My friend Rebecca read a draft and said 'I feel empowered ­ I feel like I
can do something with the garden.' I was so chuffed. She also said she
'laughed out loud', but I don't know if that was in a good way or not.

If you haven't got the time or inclination to trawl through lots of text to
get information, you've come to the right place. The information in Small
Family Gardens is laid out very clearly. I wanted it to be easy to read,
fun and accessible.

Did I succeed? I think I did. And I'm still chuffed with it.
