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.

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.

HASH(0x911629a8) 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.*****

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.

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!
HASH(0x91162eac) étoiles sur 5 This Tells You How to Build a Garden from Start to Finish 10 avril 2013

You can tell right from the start of this book that Peter Owen really knows his stuff. He discusses all aspects of planning and designing a garden in an organized, deliberate fashion that will ensure your garden lasts for a long time. He points out the importance of checking that what you are doing is legal -- it seems there are so many new regulations that it's tough to keep up with them all. I particularly enjoyed the information about the various Landscape Themes and how to blend them together: Water Features, The Secret Retreat, Garden Edging, Retaining Walls, Using Rocks in Your Garden, Your Fences, and Steps in Your Garden.

If you are ready to undertake a landscape project, I recommend you get this book even if you are having the work done by others. Even if you are not thinking of making any changes, this will probably give you some great ideas on how you might improve the world around you.

If you are clueless about designing a garden or doing landscaping, it's difficult to imagine a better introductory book that this very inexpensive one by Peter Owen. It's obvious from the initial chapter that he has the experience required to write such a book. It's packed with useful information and photos. It covers both hard-scape and soft-scape and such specific topics as soil acidity, sun, drainage, safety, edging, retaining walls. Since I've been thinking about doing more with my own property, I was excited to find and read this book.
