Written by David Stevens (winner of eight gold medals at the Chelsea Flower Show) it will show you how to design a garden to fit your needs, lifestyle and budget. Whether you employ a professional garden designer or do it yourself, Gardens by Design will ensure your garden serves you and not the other way around.
It looks at all aspects of design including making a checklist of your requirements, assessing existing good and bad points, choosing a suitable designer, drawing a plan and choosing the right plants.
The book also contains plans from some of the gardens featured in the six-part TV series and includes ideas from some of today’s more modern and adventurous designers.
So, whatever your garden — tiny square front or back, a roof or a balcony — Gardens by Design will show you how to improve it by using even the simplest of design techniques, and so increase your enjoyment and the value of your house.”
