Spending time in your garden is one of life’s great pleasures and adding hard landscaping such as paths, patios and decking will provide not only a structure to any garden design, but also the opportunity for you to enjoy your garden to the fullest. Whether you are looking to create a vibrant entertainment space or tranquil secluded spot, or simply provide easy access to important areas, a path, patio or decked area can help you realise your dreams. It can also add value to your property and is much easier to do than it may at first appear, as Paul Wagland shows. This book takes you through the entire process of creating a range of hard-landscaped areas for your garden, offering detailed advice on how to design a space to suit your needs, clear instructions on building processes and inspirational ideas on planting and furnishing the finished product. All aspects of the work are clearly illustrated by colour photographs, with step-by-step instructions on all the key building techniques. Also includes guidance on building other garden features such as ponds and walls.
