Description
This beautiful and practical new book is packed with creative ideas for making a successful outside courtyard space. The courtyard is typically an open area surrounded by walls or buildings, and can range from a tiny backyard, an urban terrace or patio area with small-scale gardening, to a more expansively sized area of garden with defined borders. Each chapter includes a case study with a detailed color plan explaining the dynamics of the different designed spaces, and describing how specific elements were achieved, such as building a slate path or producing a wall stencil. The plant directory gives a comprehensive listing of planting options, each entry complete with propagation, growth patterns, and ideal conditions. The final section on maintenance shows how to keep your courtyard looking its best, including deadheading, watering techniques and repainting fencing and trellis. This beautiful and practical new book is packed with creative ideas for making a successful outside courtyard space.
