Garden design doesn't need to be complicated. The practical, no-nonsense approach of this book strips away complex design concepts and focuses on your needs to help you find your own garden style, even if you don't know where to start.
Whatever your space - be it a small garden with a patio, a city roof terrace or a classic country garden - Adam Frost can show you how to create a garden that suits your lifestyle, personality and budget. Adam is the BBC Gardeners' World presenter and Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medal winner. He offers simple garden design ideas that work equally well for a garden makeover, an elegant but low-maintenance garden or for creating entirely new landscaping ideas. Complete with plant species readily available in Australia, Adam's step-by-step instructions show you everything from laying turf to terraces, planting trees to building raised beds or water features. A month-by-month checklist - especially adapted for Australian gardeners - tells you what to do when to keep your garden in shape.
How to Create Your Garden will give you the confidence and skills to create your dream outdoor space, no matter what sort of area you are working with. Bit by bit, bed by bed, Adam Frost shows you how to plan and plant up a beautiful, functional garden that works for you and your family - all without breaking the bank or needing to know endless Latin plant names.
