About this book

Landscape design isn't so much about rules that guarantee to create the perfect design every time, but rather it is a series of guidelines and suggestions that will help to save time and money, as well as generally reduce the frustrations that many design forms often lead to. This title features such guidelines, some for the new home owner to help with the many first time garden situations and pitfalls that tend to arise, as well as those for the more experienced home owner who is being challenged with alterations, changes in garden styles or themes or simply looking at old sites in a new light. Aspects such as water-saving concepts, ways to encourage wildlife and thoughts on environmental or regional approaches to garden design are also included.
