What Reviewers Are Saying
Boundaries in a garden are used for both demarcation - of properties or areas - as well as being decorative features in their own rights. Garden writer Toby Buckland gives a comprehensive overview of the subject in this addition to the "Garden DIY" series. Bricks, wood, stone and living materials are all examined and the techniques needed to construct boundaries of each material are clearly explained and illustrated. Contemporary materials such as copper cladding, glass screens and concrete mix with the more traditional hurdles, pleached trees and picket fencing. Entranceways are also examined: doors, gates, floral tunnels and the way they can entice visitors to explore further explained. For anyone looking for ideas on garden boundaries whether in a new garden or an existing one, this book gives easy-to-understand instructions on every aspect. Tools, methods and materials are clearly illustrated and the knowledge of Toby Buckland's gardening and DIY credentials ensure confidence in any of the projects contained within. - Lucy Watson
