Paths and Walkways: Simple Projects, Contemporary Designs (Garden Design)by Hazel White
Synopses & Reviews
Gardeners wanted; no experience necessary! Chronicle Books is pleased to introduce an exciting and unique new how-to series, Garden Design books. Beginning with Water Gardens and Paths and Walkways, Garden Design books present beautiful photographs of enchanting garden elements and then offer complete step-by-step directions for building the projects pictured. Featuring ideas from award-winning gardens created by renowned landscape architects, the elements include classic garden structures as well as whimsical contemporary designs. Easy-to-follow directions explain exactly what to do and how to do it, what it will cost, and how long it will take. With projects suited to both small and large spaces, the Garden Design series is more than a new collection of lovely picture books — it is a valuable tool that enables readers to actually create their own outdoor havens. Paths and Walkways covers brick, gravel, stone, grass, wood, and concrete, and features easy "recipes" for such projects as a beach trail with poppies of Rhodes, a stepping stone bridge across a meadow, fieldstones with irises, and Mediterranean crazy paving, not to mention a complete plan for the Path of Righteousness.
Introducing Chronicle's new Garden Design Series--filled with cutting-edge designs from award-winning gardens, step-by-step instructions, tips and techniques--PATHS AND WALKWAYS covers brick, gravel, stone, grass, wood, and concrete, and features easy "recipes" for many special projects, such as a beach trail, a stepping-stone bridge, Mediterranean paving, and more. 100 full-color photos.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 115) and index.
