Yard and Garden Makeovers
Your Guide to Creating A Beautiful, Logical LandscapeBook - 2008
Approaching landscape design with the philosophy that style and harmony are equally important, this book covers basic design concepts through photographs, plans, and insightful text on how to create striking yet practical landscapes. First considering how a yard or garden is to be used, the owners' sensibilities, and the feel of the home and neighborhood, the book discusses what is appropriate for a front yard garden, as well as how to make livable areas in a backyard. It also eschews mass-produced pavers, blocks, and garden art in favor of attractive and functional walkways and entrances to the home and garage that emphasize natural elements as part of the construction. Instructive before-and-after shots of home landscape makeovers illustrate how a drab landscape can be beautifully and logically improved to reflect the owners' needs and tastes while adding zest and value to the home.
