This is a beautifully illustrated book to inspire you to cultivate your garden space. James Van Sweden addresses the elements of the garden - paths, walls, gates, fences, terraces, sheds, lighting, furniture, waterworks and how to integrate them so they work beautifully together. The first three chapters provide the inspiration and description of the elements. Chapters 4-9 are studies on specific gardens that you can pull elements from to integrate into your own design. Sweden completes the book by revisiting the elements of a garden and discussing code issue. A very thorough study on how to build an outdoor space.
