With a host of innovative ideas for eye-catching garden features that make the most of a small space, gardening experts Richard Bird and George Carter lead you through fifty-six superb projects specifically for small gardens. For plots as small as a window box or as long as a pathway, Bird and Carter detail the essentials of decorative gardening, like raised beds, fences, arches, and trellises.

This book shows you how to make and decorate a wide variety of containers, from a scented window box to a painted galvanized washtub. It explains how to create raised flower and vegetable beds, a picket fence, a rose arch -- and many other stone, brick, wood or metal structures. Decorative planting projects include an herb topiary and a sweet pea obelisk, and ideas for the vegetable gardener range from chile peppers in pots to a strawberry bed.
