Garden Walls, Fences, and HedgesBook - 2001
Step into your garden--what do you see? With the right wall, fence, or hedge, it will look even better and be more functional! Use this hardworking information to add privacy, create outdoor rooms, block noise and pollution, improve safety, increase property value, and even provide a microclimate for tender plants. Evaluate your own outdoor space, then establish garden boundaries the right way, with these detailed facts on materials, construction, and growing conditions. For each type, you'll find specific projects, from building a dry-stack stone wall to setting up posts and pickets to planting an espalier fruit tree. Spectacular photos present gorgeous design ideas for draping a fence with colorful climbing vines, nesting a rock garden into a wall, and cultivating plants that grow near, up, and even in the border. And, when you're done building, turn your practical structure into art with finials, funky mosaics, veneers, trompe l'oeil, and other brilliant enhancement ideas!
