About this book

Urban dwellers often have little time or space in which to create a garden despite often needing a restful outdoor area to which they can retreat. By looking at innovative designs for varied styles of urban gardens Stephen Anderton shows how they can be adapted to create outdoor spaces that are not only imaginative but are also imbued with a mood of peace and serenity.
