Everything You Need to Create A GardenBook - 2002
Easier to create and tend, patio and courtyard gardens offer more enjoyment than other gardens: they're designed for living--eating or entertaining--not admiring from afar. All you need to know to make intimate "outdoor rooms" from these pages: how to select and lay the surface materials, pick containers, construct raised beds, even add finishing touches such as lighting. So relax--the perfect garden retreat, with thriving followers and foliage, is just outside your door.
