Infinite Ideas, Jan 16, 2012 - Gardening - 256 pages
Don't worry, Create your dream garden isn't your usual garden makeover book that tries to convince you to put decking over every plant you have. Instead this book will help you to discover what's practical for you to achieve and most importantly what you can do that's relatively low maintenance. It is designed to help you achieve the garden you have always wanted while also being practical and realistic about the time you have to do it. By the end of this book you won't have a degree in horticulture, but you will have a garden that blooms and delights.
