No need to have a green thumb to enjoy colourful and attractive outdoor spaces. This book uses common cast cement landscaping elements like scalloped borders, stepping stones, and retaining wall blocks, as well as natural river rocks, to create an amazing array of innovative designs. Author Lin Wellford takes readers step by step through the process of making a realistic "Faux Fish Pond" and a strikingly lifelike "Iguana Rock", plus fanciful projects for flower and butterfly stepping stones, "Fishy Flower Beds" and a life-size "Garden Gator". Full size patterns along with clear and complete instructions and over 200 hundred colour photos ensure that anyone can succeed in making these attractive pieces to enhance their gardens and paths.
Lin Wellford is an artist and the author of four other rock painting titles: "The Art of Painting Animals on Rocks," "Painting Houses," "Cottages and Towns on Rocks," "Painting More Animals on Rocks" and "Painting Flowers on Rocks." Since 1978, Lin has been turning river rocks and more amazing decorative works of art. Her work is a favorite among decorative painters looking for expressive ways to paint on rocks and stone.
