Easy Gardening & Stylish Decorating for Outdoor SpacesBook - 2001
In crowded cities, precious outside space - whether it's a traditional back garden, balcony, roof terrace or even just a window box - is something to be valued and exploited. No longer regarded as toiling with wheelbarrows and hoes, gardening has drawn inspiration from interior design and been revamped into something new and exciting. More aptly termed outdoor styling, the new form of gardening has to be fast, fun, hassle free, and produce great results. Above all, it is about creating a functional and pleasing, outdoor room - a splash of paint and a few squares of decking could be all that's needed. Plants are chosen that are easy to grow and care for, and materials are used in creative and contemporary ways. Maintenance is kept to a minimum without compromising on style. Garden Rooms is an inspiring, informative and practical guide to this new style of gardening, packed full of ideas and invaluable advice on everything you need to know to make the most of your outside space, from what plants to grow and how to care for them to laying decking or constructing a water feature. specially commissioned photographs Garden Rooms brings interior design outside, showing you how to create a comfortable, stylish environment with furniture, awnings, soft furnishings lighting and lots of other fabulous accessories.
