Gardening for Small Spaces
Clever Design Solutions to Make the Most of your PlotBook - 2009
Small is beautiful, they say, and nowhere is this truer than in the garden: the tiniest balcony can be transformed by a few pots, and a space no more than 8 meters square can accommodate a patio, some flower beds, a water feature and a tiny veg patch. In this practical but inspirational book John Cushnie advises on: deciding what you want and making it fit the space; using light and shade to make the area look bigger; using plants to provide movement, color, shape and texture; ensuring shelter and privacy without loss of space; exploring the potential of a dark basement area; creating a front garden while leaving room to park the car; making the most a roof terrace or balcony. Whatever your plot size and your level of expertise, John Cushnie will boost your confidence and fill you with inspired ideas.
