Landscaping Solutions for Small Spaces: 10 Smart Plans for Designing and Planting Small Gardens Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Small yards often pose large problems for home gardeners. Adding too many plants and other elements leads to a crowded, chaotic look, but it is also easy to plan for too few plants, which can make even a small space seem sparse and under planted. 10 Garden Solutions for Small Spaces provides detailed designs for common garden situations. Each design features both "hardscaping" and landscaping ideas, including detailed plans that show the number and types of plants for each design. Plant recommendations cover all hardiness zones. Some designs address problems with the site, such as a small front yard or a sloping yard; others deal with requirements imposed by the gardener, such as garden that requires a minimal amount of maintenance or one that will be enjoyed mainly at night. In addition to the designs themselves, a building techniques section helps turn the plans into reality.

Synopsis:

10 Garden Solutions for Small Spaces offers attractive but practical gardening ideas that solve a variety of landscape problems. Designs include both planting schemes and hardscaping.
