Small Patios: Small Projects, Contemporary Designs
A patio turns any yard into an inviting, relaxing outdoor haven. Yet this essential landscaping element is too often overlooked in smaller yards. Small Patios, the latest book in our Garden Design series, presents a variety of patio projects tailored for small spacesfrom simple resting spots at the side of a path to more elaborate structures paved with tiles and enclosed in vine-covered trellises. Each project is illustrated with color photographs and includes easy-to-follow step-by-step directions. With detailed information on everything from paving, drainage, furniture, and plants, Small Patios is an indispensable guide to turning even the tiniest patch of ground into a peaceful outdoor retreat.
