This beautifully illustrated guide takes the reader through a series of logical, important steps to make garden designing a joy instead of a mystery - dealing with aspects like site analysis, plant functions and choices, hard landscape options and budget planning. It also has tips to help you save water and contains a list of current invader plants for the reader's convenience.
