Decorating your Garden
Creative Ideas for Transforming your Outdoor Living SpaceBook - 1999
As an extension of the home, the garden offers endless scope for decoration, yet the possibilities beyond gardening and planting are often left unexplored. Decorating Your Garden gives a unique angle to the design potential of the outdoor living space, with original creative projects to help reinvent the garden with beautiful decorative features and non-planting ideas.With a novel and practical approach, this book takes the principle of home decoration outside, and suggests ways to add atmosphere and style to the garden room whatever its shape or aspect. Outdoor floors are given innovative treatments using shells, pebbles or mosaic while walls and fences respond beautifully to paint effects and creative plasterwork. Fixtures and fittings such as trellises, archways and pergolas can add a new dimension to the garden, and an inspired look at garden furniture -- from elegantly draped awnings to weathered-effect painted chairs -- brings immediate results. A clever use of easy-to-make accessories can enhance even vegetable plots and practical elements, while exciting ideas and treatments for boxes, baskets, pots and planters show how to develop a decorative theme with color and charm.All the ideas in this stimulating book are inexpensive and easily achieved, and will provide inspiration for unique creative projects. Richly illustrated with beautiful color photographs, Decorating Your Garden shows how to create a visually stunning outdoor retreat with a true sense of personal style.
