The creation of an outdoor garden room is on the to-do list of nearly every gardener these days. Garden rooms give us a special, intimate place where it's possible to relax and reflect, sheltered from the cares of the world beyond its walls. In this inspiring volume, we've collected articles from Fine Gardening magazine that profile all types of garden rooms, from striking entryways to cozy sitting areas, formal courtyards to private playgrounds. Along the way you'll come to understand the basic design principles behind successful garden rooms - how to create "floors, walls and ceilings" that define space and spirit in ways that work for you and your site. And you'll see firsthand how gardeners like you deal with the challenge of transforming ordinary settings into works of art. Since its first issue in 1988, Fine Gardening has become known as the magazine for hands-on gardeners, where enthusiasts share their knowledge and expertise. This book is the ninth in a series that collects articles from Fine Gardening into individual volumes by subject.
