A fresh approach and simple way to transform your yard!
The prospect of revamping a yard is daunting. Where do you start? How do all the various areas come together in a beautiful, cohesive way? The Beginner’s Guide to Starting a Garden simplifies the process by showing you how to spend fewer hours (and a minimal amount of money) in the garden by tackling one small area at a time. You’ll find garden plans for ten unique areas—the entryway, the shady areas under trees, and more—that can be linked together over time to create a unified yard, and plants that are dependable, easy to find, and look good year after year. You’ll also learn the basics of good design, which plants offer the most bloom for your buck, and how to avoid the most common planting mistakes.
A great visual and easy to understand reference for any home …
I love a colourful well planned garden, unfortunately these days it is mostly about paving and grass where I live. I guess people don’t know how to make a garden.
This book covers a lot of ground in a simple yet informative way. It does not baffle one with horticultural terms, but has plenty of photos, diagrams and tips. The information is written in a sequence looking at homes and how to design areas. I really like this book – I should have read this before I started buying and planting the wrong things in unsuitable places.
