Lawn and Garden Construction
This book provides you with the necessary knowledge plus the "how-to" expertise to enable any contractor, student, or homeowner to construct a variety of yard and garden structers. Each chapter, written in easy-to-understand language and complemented with ample diagrams, stresses the importance that plannin plays as well as reviewing all the various considerations affecting the project's eventual outcome prior to its actual construction. Everything from patios and decks to fireplaces and sprinklers is discussed. Most of the guesswork associated with the purchase of material is eliminated with the help of tables and charts. This book will serve as a handy reference guide, a teaching manual, and a confidence builder.
