Garden DesignBook - 2000
Basic doesn't have to mean boring -- or expensive -- according to expert gardener David Stevens. In SOMA Basics: Garden Design, he simplifies the tricks and tools of professional designers so that anyone can fashion a great-looking garden. And this can be done, says Stevens, by tapping a richer resource than mere money: the imagination. Employing full-color photographs, informative text, and a splashy layout, he guides the reader through each step of the process.Steven's long experience in the field has taught him secrets and shortcuts to give even hesitant gardeners the confidence to create. Starting with an overview of standard garden styles, he details techniques for making the most of unpromising spaces; gives simple instructions for surveying, creating concepts, and implementing plans; and shows how real-life gardeners have put the elements together.
