Architecture in the Garden
The elements of garden architecture - paths, walls, gates, fences, terraces, sheds, lighting, furniture, waterworks and art - together form the backbone of any well-designed garden. This illustrated and accessible book explains how to design and build a garden like a professional.
James van Sweden leads his readers on a tour through some of his gardens - in the country, the city, the suburbs and by the sea. Case studies highlight architectural elements, breaking each one down into practical ideas that any gardener can apply to his or her own garden. There are dozens of schematic drawings that can be used to build many of the elements described, and an extensive illustrated glossary.
