Présentation de l'éditeur

"Design a Garden" is a book that is best described as an absolute essential part of the puzzle, if you are serious about creating a garden that is not only beautiful, but functional as well, then you will need to put all the elements together that make up a properly designed landscape. This book has been presented in a fashion that is vital to the overall success of your design.

Too many designs have only concentrated on the look of the landscape, and although they may create a picture of beauty, we all know there is more to a successful design than just the look. There is the very important functionality of your garden, making sure that everything is working well like the drainage plan for example.
The Landscaping of any garden is split up into Hardscape aspect and the Softscape, simply put the building and the planting, both are discussed in detail and their importance. Outlining the procedure of what takes precedence with your plan and what you need to do. 
What is covered in the first eight chapters.

These first chapters discuss the general knowledge and behind the scenes of any successful Garden Plan, we look at the many issues that are often not often considered by many people when they want to design their own garden, but nevertheless, these aspects are very important and must never be left from giving them due diligence and consideration when designing any part of your garden. For example :
  • The necessity of a drainage plan.
  • What to expect from your local authorities.
  • The climate, shade or direct sunlight.
  • Groups of plants.
  • Designing a garden with a growing family in mind.
We discuss some of the more popular Landscape Themes.
When designing a garden we generally work with what we call Landscape Themes, many of these themes are described and featured in this book as well as explaining how they are to be incorporated into your Landscape plan, as well as blending them together to obtain the best result. Some themes will be essential for you and others will just be a matter of desire, whatever the reason for incorporating them into your design, they make for a part of what completes the picture of your garden. Some of the Landscape themes that are covered in the following chapters of the book, are as follows :
  • Water Features.
  • Entertainment Areas.
  • Retaining Walls.
  • Garden Edging.
  • Steps.
  • Fences.
  • The use of Rocks.
  • And more.
The subjects of landscape design in this book, will inform you of the basics of all that you desperately need, so you will with confidence be able to put a plan together, whether it's a plan for your own garden or for someone else, it's essential that all these elements are considered in your design.
Finally to the success on creating your Garden Masterpiece.
The end result of your garden design must function not just in the practical sense, but as a group of features blending together as an extension of your home. More and more people are moving to the outside now when entertaining friends, so when created properly, it will stand out as your very own masterpiece. A creation that you can be proud of and the chapters in this book can certainly help you get there.
I hope that you enjoy reading it and gathering the information that applies to your own situation.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great resource for gardeners of all levels 11 avril 2013
Par Glorybee - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
If you're thinking of designing or re-designing your garden, reach for this book first. There is an abundance of practical knowledge along with great creative ideas for landscaping. I especially like the chapter on creating a secret retreat.

Do-it-yourselfers will find step by step directions here. If you are outsourcing part of the work, you'll be able to speak with authority and explain what you want in clear terms.

I gave it four stars because there is no clickable table of contents, which is quickly becoming expected and a standard feature in ebooks.

*****I'm ammending his review as the first time I downloaded this to my Kindle to PC and the TOC did not work. When I downloaded it to my Kindle, the table of contents was clickable.*****

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great tips for how to design and plan your garden 11 avril 2013

Do you know the difference between a hardscape and a softscape, and why that's important? Have you thought of checking to see how to properly design your garden drainage or build and place a gazebo?

Are you designing with your family in mind? In pots or plots; with water features like little ponds or waterfalls? Do you know which plants like sun, shade or in between?

Have you always wanted a sweet, secret garden retreat? What kind of edging will your garden have, and what kinds of paths within it?

Peter Owen gives you fine tips on all that and much more, how to design, create and build your dream garden so it's not only a pleasing space to hang out in but safe and functional as well.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Gardening Done The Right Way! 10 avril 2013

This book is a must read for anyone thinking about designing their own garden. It presents the information in a logical way and includes things like drainage, design themes, zoning and much much more. I can tell that Peter really knows his stuff when it comes to gardening. I wish I had this book when I moved into my house 20 years ago. the landscaper did not plan for growth and now my beds are way to crowded. Never would of happened if I had this book!

Not much here. Not many photos. Not much substance. Reads a bit like a middle school essay. It does, however, cover most of the considerations of designing a garden, but somehow manages to do so without providing much information. If you are looking for a how-to, this isn't it.

There is really very little in this book that is inspiring. Indeed most of the detail is available in every book on landscaping or on the web for free. But if you are after something short and on your very first step towards creating a design then perhaps this is for you.
