The majority of people do not have the luxury of a large outdoor space - whether it be a garden, terrace or courtyard - most have a small area to work with. However, even the smallest of gardens can be made into a stunning outdoor area; the trick is knowing how to achieve this. This book contains all of the information that anyone who is looking to improve their small garden needs to know. Starting from the basics of types of garden, equipment, lighting and plant care, the book offers a wealth of ideas on different garden styles - from a Mediterranean garden to a wildflower garden, a Japanese garden to a wildlife garden - detailed lists of appropriate plants, including herbs, fruits and vegetables and practical step-by-step instructions for making paths, patios and other garden structures.
