Overview

Make your garden a source of year-round pleasure! With these great ideas for transforming your outdoor space into outdoor rooms--all displayed in lush color photos--you can create an environment of beauty, creativity, and repose. Even the smallest balcony or windowsill will blossom with these unusual, low-maintenance ways to grow and display plants, along with simple, original projects that make any garden absolutely enticing. Conceal walls with climbing and creeping plants; add special effects by coating surfaces with bright colored paint or with a trompe l'oeil; plant vertically for a better use of space, and set out a variety of potted plants. Build awnings, establish an open-air dining room--fragrant with the aroma of freshly growing herbs--and put in landscape lighting. Every design includes basic ground rules to follow, planting tips, and timesaving suggestions. From an "edible garden" to arbors and bowers, each theme and scheme is so fantastic you won't know which to choose!
