Especially suited to the growing conditions and the urban settings of the Pacific Northwest, cottage gardens are comfortable and romantic and look as though they were thrown together with ease. However, these beautiful gardens need considerable planning to appear natural and informal. This accessible guide explores the origin and history of cottage gardens, and outlines the essentials of creating a cozy garden sanctuary, including design and layout, functional structures, furniture, decor and materials, plant selection, and maintenance.
