Product Information

Joan Clifton is the author of "Garden Elements" which was nominated as "Most Inspiring Book of the Year" at the Garden Writer's Guild Awards 2000.

To be viewed more as a source for inspiration than a practical guide, "Courtyard and Terrace Gardens" offers a wealth of ideas for the smaller gardens found today. With gardens shrinking in size, especially in cities to make way for more housing, it has often become a more practical solution to forgo green lawns and herbaceous borders in favour of something more stylish and easier to maintain. But getting a patio to look right can be hard. A style has to be selected - chic, rustic, contemporary or avant-garde; hard-landscaping materials and furniture have to be chosen with care and sympathetic to the surroundings; and what plants to grow to enhance the whole? Joan Clifton gives a comprehensive overview of all these dilemmas and, lavishly illustrated with the photographs of Steven Wooster, offers a selection of options open to personal interpretation and style. She guides the reader through the vast array of current choices, giving clear design advice for even the most ignorant gardener. - Lucy Watson
