What makes a garden special? Focal points that attract the eye turn each area into a habitat of graceful beauty, and make a strong first impression. Using dozens of inspiring photographs, plus detailed drawings that provide a map of all the elements, horticulturist Tara Dillard reveals her secrets for creating dazzling arrangements that are elegant (not overdone) and maintain their loveliness all year long. Find out how to choose a theme, make a splash with color, add garden art, install effective architectural pieces and furnishings, and generate a big impact with just a little input. From trompe l’oeil (including faux doors and windows) to recreating the first garden you loved, every idea here is top-quality.
