Small gardens are a challenge to design and to keep looking good but now help is on hand! This practical guide seeks to inspire and inform gardeners to make the most of their small spaces. Featuring more than 50 contemporary and inspirational gardens, the handbook examines both how their designers created them and how their owners use and develop them. This serious review of the perennial subject explains the theory and practice of planting a small garden, as well as design tricks, storage solutions and vertical planting to help small garden owners maximise their small spaces. With advice for embracing sustainability, the use of recycled materials and the scope for bio-diversity, this is the go-to guide to ensure you are getting the most from your small garden. Stunningly illustrated with photos by Dutch garden photographer and former fashion stylist Maayke de Ridder, this is a must for anyone looking to be creative with their small garden.
