Making the most of a yard or garden does not necessarily mean being a green-fingered enthusiast and people are increasingly seeing their garden as an outdoor room - personalizing the garden has never been more popular. Wood, water and stone are basic elements that should be present in any garden. Wood is readily available, easy to work with and inexpensive, while stone has been used for centuries for its durability, strength and versatility. Water is crucial to life and its introduction into a garden will add balance and calm, as well as a sense of fun. Step-by-Step Garden DIY presents 48 functional yet attractive projects, from trellises and planters, to paths, rockeries, fountains and waterfalls. Each has step-by-step photographs and instructions and the finished piece is photographed in its garden setting. Clear construction diagrams and concise text accompany every project, and there are inspirational spreads featuring stunning garden structures to provide even more ideas for the DIY enthusiast. With expert advice on staining and varnishing wood for the outdoors to ensure that it lasts, this is both an attractive and accessible practical DIY book.
