Summary

Summary

Illustrates classic, whimsical, and wild ideas for decorating a garden, with some 280 color photos for inspiration. This is not a typical garden book; the tips offered here are intended to help bring gardens to life with fanciful scarecrows, sculpture critters, found objects, and nostalgia. There are ideas on creating illusions with murals and mirrors, new ways of displaying classic garden ornaments like fountains and sundials, and examples of weaving natural elements into aesthetically pleasing shapes and patterns. c.
