Secrets of Small Gardens
Featuring 20 gardens that showcase inspiring solutions to landscaping limited spaces to maximum effect, this book displays elegant structured gardens, whimsical retreats, verandahs and balconies, to potagers brimming with edibles and subtropical hideaways. With more than 300 photographs that capture the essence of the gardens, landscaping features and plants used, this is a book that is both inspiring and practical. From a 1960's gem designed by famous architect Sir Miles Warren for his inner city apartment and office, to a new rooftop garden and another planted only with edibles, this book shows a diversity of responses to spatial constraints. Many gardens have water features, most don't have lawns and a couple of gardeners have created little havens on the berms outside their homes. Extended captions, pull-out boxes and bullet-point solutions with lots of tips and plant suggestions from each gardener conveys information in an accessible manner.
