Homescaping: Designing Your Landscape to Match Your Home
Transform your landscape into an extension of your home with this innovative new approach to garden design and outdoor decorating-showing how to create the perfect setting for any home.
Well-designed outdoor space enhances the appeal and functionality of any home by making the house look complete and seamlessly integrated into its setting. Would a woodland garden work with a stone farmhouse? Would a flagstone walkway suit a brick Colonial? This one-of-a-kind book shows how to transform outdoor space into an extension of the home by matching landscape design to house style. In Homescaping, noted garden writer Anne Halpin:
o Explores different garden styles and offers guidelines on which sorts of houses each garden style suits best
o Shows the way to mix and match the colors of paint and building materials with flower and plant colors
o Looks at options for paths, patios, decks, walls, fences, and hedges; outdoor structures like arbors, pergolas, gazebos, and sheds; and outdoor furniture, lighting, water features, ornaments, and plant containers
Providing a fresh new perspective on home improvement, Homescaping is perfect for homeowners wanting to beautifully complement their home.
