Many people, given sound guidelines will have the interest and ability to handle their own landscape gardening. Many others will wish to call on the services of a landscape gardener. Those who have a love of gardens and the wish to create an individual garden layout for themselves, will find "Garden Design - The Book" invaluable.

The book is design-oriented to help you produce the garden you want. It takes you step-by-step through the essential planning stages, and teaches you to look at, and understand gardens and what goes into their make-up, discusses materials to use, garden styles, how to get it all together and put your final plan into action.

The 52 page, illustrated A4 size book is written in a simple to follow manner. Each chapter is designed to help you produce another link in a chain of planning, so that you finish the book with a workable garden design which you can implement either on your own or with the additional help of a tradesman.
