Make the most of your outdoor space, whatever its shape, aspect or topography. Small by Design presents a series of garden design ideas specifically focused on small plots of land. Whether your desire is for a water feature, a kid's play area, a vegetable patch, swathes of lawn or a place to kick back and relax, author Paul Urquhart shows you how to look at your space objectively, think through all the practical aspects you need to incorporate, and then start to design a garden that suits your needs and looks attractive all year round. From clean lines and contemporary design, through softly flowing borders and old-fashioned flower garden, there are ideas here to suit every garden space. The hard landscaping of boundaries, floors and garden buildings are discussed, along with all the soft landscaping choices including selecting plants specifically for your aspect, to disguise an unsightly view, to deter burglars or to plant for scent, colour and flower species. Beautifully illustrated with photographs by well known garden photographer Lorna Rose, the book will be invaluable to landscape architects, town planners, councils, horticulturalists and gardeners.
