About this book

Ivan Hicks and Richard Rosenfeld believe that trees are an underused aspect of gardens as their 'bendy' forms means they can be manipulated and pruned into fantastic shapes.

They show how trees and shrubs can be turned into fun towers for children to play in, bent over as pliable saplings to create bridges, arches, tunnels and temples, or even transformed into conceptual sculptures.

Accessible and practical text is accompanied by Hicks' original concept sketches and a wealth of photos. These inspirational ideas are supported by plant lists and horticulture information suitable to each project.
