Look beyond the back door and discover the outdoor spaces that are waiting to be shaped into natural, relaxing extensions of the home. With gorgeous photographs throughout--many of them full-page--this inspiring guide immerses you in the aesthetics of outdoor living, from tiled gardens to trellised dining areas. Learn how boundaries, from low shrubs to metal walls, are essential to creating comfortable outdoor spaces, and how gardens can achieve the right balance of light and shadow. Also included are instructions for building wood and metal archways, "sleeper” steps, and a continuously refilling water chute; there is even a section on creating the perfect tree house!
