Gardening in Small SpacesBook - 1997
This illustrated guide looks at both how to create small gardens from scratch and how to revitalize existing gardens. It examines the joys and challenges presented by small gardens, terraces and patios in a variety of locations - from city courtyards, roof terraces and decks to balconies and sloping rural gardens. Kirby writes about the intimacy of a loved small space, capturing the charm and value of its shelter and privacy. It gives practical advice and hints on how to imaginatively create lasting beauty in enclosed plots. The chapters include planning, design, construction and planting in sunny and shaded gardens, courtyard gardens, roof terraces and containers, ornament and decoration.
