The Garden DYI Expert.

Many homesteaders probably think of a garden as a place to grow food. In England (where this book was first published), they take a more classical approach: a garden consists not only of fruits and vegetables, but also flowers, trees and lawn...

And non-living objects.

The latter is what this book is about, and it covers them in grand style.

Just scanning this book will probably give you some ideas of ways to make your homestead a more pleasant place to both live and relax. There are walls, fences, gates and paths, of course. Steps, edgings and patios.

But the author goes beyond these, to arches and pergolas, ponds and fountains, rockeries and barbecues and lighting and bird features.

For the more practical-minded, there are also greenhouses, buildings, play areas and watering systems.

There are chapters on materials, and on maintenance and repairs.

If you enjoy pleasant outdoor surroundings, this book will inspire you.
