By David Stevens
This gardening guide features plans and appraisals of well-designed gardens, with a clear account of the design process, from bare plot to finished design. For David Stevens, a garden is a room outside, furnished with plants. In this book, he de-mystifies the design process by applying many familiar rules of interior design and planning. His designs are stylish and contemporary, reflecting the owner's personality, requirements and lifestyle, and is suitable for the tiniest of gardens. Stevens's approach is accessible to the novice gardener and enthusiast alike, as he shows how to plan lawns and patios, fences and hedges, plants and ornaments in the same way as an interior designer might consider the walls, floors, colour schemes, furniture and fabrics of a house. David Stevens is the author of "The Contained Garden", "Creative Gardens", "Small Gardens and Backyards", "The Garden Book", "Roof Gardens", "Balconies and Terraces" and "Gardens By Design".
