A garden offers invaluable space for relaxing entertaining, and, above all, enjoying the huge pleasure of growing your own flowers, shrubs, trees, and crops. However, a small garden can present challenges to even the most experience gardener: it may be overlooked, which can impact upon your privacy; there may be more shade than you would like; and it may not be immediately obvious how to create a space that is both multifunctional and beautiful.
Kleine Gärten können eine große Freude sein, bringen aber spezifische Probleme mit sich. Worauf dieses Buch detailliert eingeht. „Overall, the design emphasis is more contemporary than traditional although there are examples or more traditional gardens and materials. The planting ideas are excellent and I like the fact that there are sections covering maintenance & garden housekeeping.“ (Leser) (27 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 224 Seiten noch günstig?

Ein weiteres Buch für Gärtner mit wenig Platz aber viel Ehrgeiz. „There’s some good ideas here, simply expressed – check out his ‚box-sculpture‘ method of placing and choosing a focal point; a good idea that allows you to see what space a chosen sculpture might take up before you lug it about over the garden and find out that it won’t fit or look right!“ (Leserin) (14 Rezensionen / 4,8 Sterne), 224 Seiten noch günstig?
