Booklist Review

Billington begins with the chapter "Choice," which is about plants and materials that make the most of small spaces. Included is advice on using plants in containers, planting styles, the various types of soil, and plant care. The next chapter, "Illusion," concerns the ways of making a garden seem more spacious, and one titled "Atmosphere" illustrates various garden styles: formal, abundant, contemporary, and shady. There's a directory of 150 plants suitable for small places and 12 garden plans. There are also instructions on shaping shrubs and climbers, along with 150 color photographs and 75 color illustrations. None of the gardens featured are more than 50 feet long, but some are quite lavish: elegant rooftop gardens in Paris and Vienna and courtyards adjoining what look like million-dollar homes. Still, there are plenty of imaginative designs for gardeners with very little space and very little money to spend on such projects. (Reviewed March 15, 1999)1570761280George Cohen
