Classic Garden Plans

Front Cover
Frances Lincoln, 2004 - Gardens - 160 pages
"Although many of the original designs are quite grand, David Stuart has focused on elements that can be used to make lovely gardens on a much smaller scale. Each design is a recipe that garden owners can easily follow or adapt for their own space. Clear planting plans, instructions on building, laying out, planting and caring for the garden, and a 'shopping list' of suitable plants show you how."--BOOK JACKET.
