Description of this Book

As sections get smaller and time gets stretched people
increasingly want ideas for creating multi-functional,
appealing outdoor spaces that offer options for everything
from alfresco entertaining to edible gardens. This book
features 20 gardens that showcase inspiring solutions to
landscaping limited spaces to maximum effect. From elegant
structured gardens, to whimsical retreats, verandahs and
balconies, to potagers brimming with edibles and subtropical
hideaways, this book offers gardeners plenty of options for creating their own special
spaces.
Featuring more than 300 photographs that capture the essence of the gardens,
landscaping features and plants used, this is a book that is both inspiring and practical.
From a 1960s gem designed by famous architect Sir Miles Warren for his inner city
apartment and office, to a new rooftop garden and one planted only with edibles the
book shows a diversity of responses to spatial constraints. Many gardens have water
features, most don't have lawns and a couple of gardeners have created little havens

on the berms outside their homes. Extended captions, pull-out boxes and bullet-
point solutions with lots of tips and plant suggestions from each gardener conveys

information in an accessible manner.
