Overview

Whether you want a wall or a pond, a new look for your lawn or an inventive way to pave your patio, Garden Design Details is packed with hundreds of images and ideas.With practical information about what materials and designs will work in harmony with your garden, this book will open your eyes to the possibilities at hand. All the ideas are attainable and durable, with options for different styles and sizes of garden.

Divided into four main chapters - Verticals; Horizontals, Punctuation; and Casework - the book discusses the main visual elements of a garden and then shows them in context through a selection of international case studies. In Verticals you'll find walls; hedges; fences; railings; trellis work; entrances and openings; gates; doors; level changes; feature plants and trees; woods; orchards; and land sculpture. Horizontals covers beds; borders; edging; paths; terraces; lawns; meadows; wild flower planting; knots; parterres; mazes; lakes; ponds; water features; natural swimming pools; stepping stones; land sculpture; and bridges. Punctuation discusses eye-catchers; seating; planters; pots and urns; statues; sculpture; fountains; arches; pergolas; tunnels; plant supports; and garden buildings. A final chapter of case studies shows the bigger picture with vertical, horizontal and punctuation design elements together in situ to show how they can be used to the best advantage. The case studies illustrate a range of styles and settings including traditional, contemporary, minimal and international.

Arne Maynard gives useful and practical advice for every type of garden from country acres to town courtyard. With over 350 photographs and design information covering everything from walls to paving, and fences to ponds, Garden Design Details is packed full of ideas.
