Afraid To Get Your Garden Started?
Landscaping Made Easy by Design is an easy, enjoyable read that points you in the right direction with your landscaping projects. Have you ever gazed out the window and dreamed of creating your very own Monet masterpiece? Or stared at your withered patch of grass and wondered where all those beautiful gardens in magazines come from? Or, do you just give up and close your blinds.
In upbeat fashion, BC landscaper Ruth Olde uncovers the most efficient way to design and plan an inspiring garden. Beautiful photos and garden designs illustrate Ruth’s basic premise… your garden is a space for living, made up of rooms.
These outdoor rooms can be romantic, whimsical or formal, reflecting your personality and lifestyle. Gardens that capture your eyes and heart don’t come about by accident. Imagination and careful planning are absolutely necessary – before planting.
Landscaping Made Easy by Design’s delightful, easy-to-follow layout will guide you through your quest to create your garden masterpiece. Get this book home and get it dirty! Read what others are saying about it, and place your order today!
