Practical Step-by-Step Guide to Patio, Terrace, Backyard & Courtyard Gardening Paperback / softback


This title includes over 60 stage-by-stage construction and planting sequences, garden case studies, a comprehensive directory of plants and over 850 photographs.

It shows you how to plan, design and plant up beautiful and easy-to-maintain garden courtyards, walled spaces, patios, terraces and enclosed backyards.

You can create a courtyard in any style - a traditional patio, a Mediterranean-style terrace, an outdoor living and dining space, a productive area for growing fruit and vegetables, a peaceful retreat, or an ultra-modern design.

It features step-by-step advice on all the practicalities, from planning a suitable layout and preparing the site, to sourcing all the elements and choosing the plants.

This beautiful book is packed with creative ideas for making a successful courtyard space.

There is advice on flooring, walls and screens, containers, structures, furniture, ornaments, water features and lighting.

Inspirational examples are presented alongside step-by-step instructions to explain the features shown.

Case studies with detailed plans explore the dynamics of the different designed spaces, and a plant directory gives a comprehensive listing of planting options. A section on maintenance shows how to keep your courtyard looking its best.

If you have a space to design from scratch or one that needs an overhaul, this book provides all the advice you will need.
