MY GARDEN IS A CAR PARK AND OTHER DESIGN DILEMMAS

KENDRA WILSON    Book Number: 87369    Product format: Paperback

Is your garden too big, too small or an awkward shape? Do you share it with a car or are you worried that your neighbour's trees are blocking your light? Whether you are grappling with a particular dilemma or need some inspiration, the guide leads the way with sharp design advice and beautiful images to make garden design more fun. If you have a long and narrow garden, think of it as a vertical, and divide it horizontally with curved hedging, compartments and a restricted colour palette throughout. Like daisies in a lawn, moss can be seen as a negative, but if manicured with specially engineered scissors, it can be elevated to an artform as it is in Japan providing a spongy flooring for lanky rhododendrons. Here are plenty of ways with roses, free food from plants, what to do if there is too much paving and not enough soil, the delights of a water feature, making somewhere to sit, what to do with high walls and railings, if decking has been overdone, how to start a small vegetable garden. Will chickens destroy the garden? What to do if you want an English flower border, and are frightened of wasps, wonder if meadows are difficult or are worried about your wisteria, here is all about mature gardens, formality, steep slopes, a windy garden, fast-growing hedges, and an orchard without the glut. And finally, if you are fed up with slugs and weeding, grow plants that they don't like just as they do at Highgrove making sure your ecosystem is in perfect working order. Nematodes! A fun and engaging text by such gardening writers as Beth Chatto, Marjory Fish and Christopher Lloyd. 144pp in large softback packed with colour photos of flowers, plants and beautiful garden designs.
