The Patio Garden by Hazel Evans
Designing, constructing, planting and furnishing an ‘outdoor room’

An illustrated practical guide to creating an ‘outdoor room’ - design, construction, planting and furnishing.

More than 250 illustrations.

A sunny corner of the garden, a tiny backyard, a roof terrace - whatever the space available. The Patio Garden offers a wealth of exciting and original ideas for creating a new outdoor room. Examples of some of the best existing patios - ranging from a Japanese-style terrace to a romantic roof garden - demonstrate how to put good design principles into practice, and provide rich and varied solutions for tackling every situation, exposed or sheltered, sunny or shady, large or small.

The Patio Garden contains a comprehensive and clearly laid out section on structuring the patio, illustrated with full colour photographs and explanatory diagrams. It shows how to choose, design and construct all kinds of patio surface from wooden decks to tiling; how to improve or disguise boundary walls; how to use screens to divide space and how to create points of special interest in the patio by the imaginative use of water, lighting and trompe l’oeil effects with mirrors and paint.

The Patio Garden also provides detailed advice on the best ways to plant the patio, showing how to use plants to maximum effect in a variety of ways: as a backdrop, as a special feature, to cover walls and fences, to soften hard surfaces and to provide year-round colour. The suggestions are supppoted by a comprehensive catalogue of the most suitable plants and by a chapter of practical hints and information on their cultivation.

/a unique fully illustrated catalogue of patio furniture - from pots and containers to dining furniture, barbecues and light fittings - provides an invaluable source of reference for achieving a harmonious balance between the architecture of the house and the design of the garden.
