Overview

Hard landscaping materials are at the core of every garden but they have long been regarded by many as secondary to the real business of gardening -- the plants. Dynamic landscape designer and TV presenter Ann-Marie Powell looks set to change all that with a book that shows the intrinsic beauty of hard landscaping materials and the enormous opportunities they allow for making fast, innovative and stylish changes to your garden.

Taking her inspiration from everything she sees around her, from building sites to steel girders, fire escapes and electricity pylons, Ann-Marie Powell brings a breath of fresh air to garden design believing that when assessing a new garden space you should rule out nothing. In Section II dreams become reality as the potential of slate, concrete, granite, decking, willow and steel is put to the test in the garden context. Old favourites are given an original twist -- timber beams and sleepers are used in a way that makes the most of their chunky proportions and an unusual deck is made from reclaimed wood with a bumpy surface and ragged edges. Section III takes an in-depth look at the materials complete with information on where to locate them all over the world -- and what to do with them when you have found them.

Hardscape is a richly detailed sourcebook which unearths specialist material suppliers around the world, and a practical book filled with inventive ideas for making gardens with impact.
