Description

Faced with limited choice, creating your own garden features holds great appeal. This book covers every major craft that can be applied to the garden, including mosaic, metal and wirework, glass, willow weaving, coppice work and pebble work. There are ideas for creating all kinds of garden structures and features. It explains the historical origins of each craft; the range of objects that can be made for the garden, traditonal or contemporary, formal or wild; materials and where to obtain them; paints and other finishes; design considerations such as placement and associated planting; tools and techniques. Each chapter concludes with two achievable projects commissioned from leading contemporary makers in each craft, with a brief profile of the maker, a list of materials required, step-by-step construction techniques and photographs of the finished feature in a garden setting.
