The flowers are blossoming, the foliage looks fantastic, and the plant combinations are gorgeous. So why doesn't your garden satisfy? The problem just might be a lack of hardscaping--structures like arbors, walls, fountains, pools, and decks that delineate, ornament, animate, and add dimensionality to a garden. Using both his own and others' layouts, a top garden designer reveals why these structures are so important and how to incorporate them into the landscape. Each chapter examines a specific principle (creating balance, instilling motion, establishing focal points), and features illuminating discussions of style, function, application, and plantings, as well as magnificent projects. Bring fresh life to a garden by adding a curvaceous patio with a rill, a sculpture plinth on a terraced platform, or a Victorian "room."

Includes a few before and after photos, as well as images of a garden with hardscape elements removed so the reader can compare how a single element can make a garden more attractive. Excellent over all examples of paths and patios in formal and rustic styles. Includes tiny brownstone backyards and rolling suburban yards equally.
