Publisher Comments:

A small garden can be beautiful, low maintenance, sheltered, intimate and fun. Good design, both inside and outside the home, is timeless and is based on sound principles. "Small Space Gardens" takes you easily through the entire planning sequence, providing a progressive and exciting organizational sequence that will meld interior, exterior, and borrowed landscape into an elegant, practical, and integrated whole. <P> The first chapter demonstrates how to analyze your space — what you have in your garden already, what to keep and what to introduce, from furniture and lighting to walls and paths. This will help you to decide what you want from your space — whether an eating area or play zone, vegetables and herbs or a built-in barbecue. The second chapter moves on to the planning of your garden and how to maximize the space through the use of dividers, paths, walls, and raised areas, as well as making the most of vertical space. The third chapter explains why the choice of materials is crucial in a small garden, and guides you through the options. The final chapter on planting strategy helps you to formulate a considered plan to create color, texture, and atmosphere. <P> Practical, informative, and featuring case studies that reinforce all aspects of the text, "Small Space Gardens" demystifies garden design to help you create a garden that feels spacious and appealing. It is essential reading for anyone with even a square foot of outside space.

I am a Landscape Architect in Seattle and I have often used this book for inspiration in my practice. While the book focuses on small, residential gardens, I have found that the simple, clean designs can provide guidance for several landscape types. The pages are filled with photographs and plans so you can really get an idea of the design intent of each garden. I recommend it most for those who are already at least somewhat versed in landscape design or those who are looking for ideas when working with a professional.
