Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

City dwellers often have ambitious plans for their outdoor spaces, which usually range from modest to tiny, for the invaluable respite they provide from the pressures of urban life. But a small garden-terrace, patio, balcony, deck, backyard, or courtyard-can present formidable design challenges.

Andy Sturgeon's Big Plans, Small Gardens helps you make the most of your garden space, no matter how restrained the square footage. Through chapters devoted to assessing your needs and priorities, evaluating your space's limitations as well as the unique possibilities it affords, and selecting all the right design details-from lighting to furniture to the plantings themselves-Sturgeon shepherds your creation of an urban garden that's private, comfortable, accessible, and beautiful. Color photos and detailed case studies provide examples and strategies you can put to use as you remake your own precious piece of the outdoors.

Synopsis:

Minimum Space Maximum Living Outdoors is divided into three main sections.

Assessing Your Needs encourages the reader to focus on their own needs to determine their priorities in terms of making the most of their space.

Solutions by Area looks at a range of different spaces from balconies to basements, rooftops to courtyards, and highlights particular considerations of each as well as illustrating inspiring design ideas always focusing on the practical. For example, do you want to make the most of your view or do you need to screen off an eyesore?

Design Details focuses on elements such as walls, flooring, lighting, and furniture.

Throughout feature boxes and text bring in design advice, planting suggestions, and clarity on what is achievable through DIY and what needs a professional, plus include low-maintenance and drought-friendly ideas.
