From walls, arches, patios, paths, steps, roch gardens and fountains to seats and tables, sundials and bird baths, Step-by-Step Outdoor Stonework is the definitive guide to working with stone in your garden.

Full instructions for over 200 projects are accompanied by step-by-step illustrations and photographs. Whether building a wall or designing a rock garden, with this book in hand do-it-yourselfers at all levels of expertise will produce professional results every time.

Inside you'll find out how to...

* Select the right tools and materials

* Prepare ground sites correctly

* Produce sturdy and original constructions

* Create a beautiful garden or patio

Synopsis:

About this no-nonsense introduction to stonework, we'll let one of the book's reviewers speak for us.  The following is from National Gardening magazine.  "Most of the handful of books on garden stonework are fairly long on romance and a little short on the mundane details.  Step-by-Step Outdoor Stonework, however, gets right down to describing 20 fairly simple garden projects, mostly made with stone that is for sale in any stoneyard, or even at a large garden center.  If garden stonework appeals to you, this is a good introduction with projects and guidelines for the small modern garden." 

Synopsis:

Gives instructions for such popular outdoor stonework projects as patios, retaining walls, steps, and more.
