This practical manual explores the landscaping options available to the amateur gardener and describes practical projects that even a complete beginner could tackle, with each project clearly explained and illustrated step-by-step. It covers the full range of popular landscaping techniques, from laying paving and building walls to choosing plants and adding lighting, furniture and decorations. A beautiful, well-designed garden can bring many advantages: it can be a pleasure to look at, and is also a useful resource for entertaining and relaxing. What's more, it can provide you with fresh fruit and veg, increase the security around your home, and even add a considerable amount to your home's value.
