Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether it is for aesthetics, security, or simple privacy, no project is more important to a landscape than its vertical boundary structures—the fences, walls, screens, and retaining wall terraces. This book includes classic favorites, like picket fences and panel fences, but also includes interesting regional variations, like Virginia split rail fences and dry-fit stone garden walls. Also included here are the latest materials, such as new variations on PVC vinyl and polymer-coated, wrought-iron look-alikes. And special attention is given to decorative boundary walls for patios—the latest trend in today’s cutting-edge landscape architecture. Add in major hardscape retaining wall terraces, and even an invisible electronic dog-fence project, and you have the most complete and modern book on fences and garden walls available.

Book News Annotation:

Combining utility and aesthetics, garden fences, walls, and gates offer diverse options for marking home boundaries. Following an overview of the basics, step-by-step instructions are given for traditional and updated projects that involve working with wood, stone, concrete, brick, metal, bamboo, and even the "invisible" (i.e., an underground electronic pet fence). The guide includes a list of tools and materials for each project, repair instructions, color illustrations, measurement conversion charts, and resources.
