Overview

How beautiful can a small garden be? These lushly illustrated "specialist" strategies for making the most of a modest-sized space—whether backyard, terrace or courtyard—are simply magnificent. Get started with an informative discussion of small garden types, appropriate plants, problems and opportunities, design and planning. The excitement truly begins with a look at the wide variety of stylistic options. The gardens range from Mediterranean to wildflower, secluded to low-maintenance, container to balcony. And a plant directory covers it all: summer-flowering annuals, herbaceous perennials, shrubs, small trees, climbers, water plants, bamboos, culinary herbs, fruits, vegetables, and even more. For a finishing touch, there's information on garden construction, be it a path or a porch.
