Summary
"A comprehensive guide to achieving a perfect garden the Paul Bangay way, illustrated throughout with the lustrous colour photography of Simon Griffiths. One of Australia's foremost landscape designers shares his wealth of knowledge on all things practical to do with garden design and construction . It covers everything from drawing a garden plan to building a retaining wall, and from fitting in a swimming pool to finding a lawn substitute and choosing drought-tolerant plants. The point-form text, constant signposting of subject matter and breakouts allow busy readers to access the information they need instantly. The information is comprehensively illustrated throughout with diagrams, ground plans, step-by-step photographs and plant lists. This book is empowering: it gives readers an understanding of the first principles of good design, how to analyse a site and its needs, how to use space and visualise a garden, how to decide on and build the hard and soft landscaping suited to a particular garden style, and what jobs can be done by the home handyperson and what needs to be left to a professional. Above all it shows readers that its possible to garden successfully and responsibly in the water-challenged environments we live with now."--Provided by publisher
