How to get the most impact from the least space
by Glenn Morris
128 pages each, 7 1/2 x 9 1/2
full-color illustrations; Paperback
A small garden presents special landscaping challenges. Trying to shoehorn all the traditional uses of a garden -- space for circulation, for contemplation, and for cultivation, among other things -- into a small yard is a seemingly impossible task. Yet just because space is limited doesn't mean that the garden need be less than perfect -- there's a lot more to the design of small gardens than planting dwarf shrubs and shrinking violets.
The good news is that once you get it right, maintaining a small garden takes a lot less time. Glenn Morris, a landscape architect with extensive experience in creating imaginative and workable solutions to garden problems, will not only inspire you but will show you how to get the garden that is just right for you.
