Green grows the city

£12.99

Product description

Garden Art Press 1997. Hardback with dust jacket in excellent used condition - some very light marking to jacket otherwise book is as new.
First published in 1939, this text relates the gradual transformation of a forlorn, unpromising patch of London garden into the sort of idyllic and imaginative retreat of which so many city-dwellers dream. The author charts his progress from inception to completion. Buoyed by memories of his garden and "Allways" in Huntingdonshire, his innovations include cunning layouts of pathways and flowering plants, the erection of a domed greenhouse and the introduction of cacti, the construction of a rock garden, and the painstaking design of his peculiar triangular space to draw the eye in desired directions and maximize the appeal of the garden.
