Peaceful Gardens: Transform Your Outside Space into a Haven of Calm and Tranquility by Stephanie Donaldson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"Peaceful Gardens" shows you how to achieve a tranquil outdoor space with a touch of natural magic. In Peaceful Shapes and Spaces, Stephanie Donaldson describes the virtues of keeping the garden simple, and creating symmetry and balance within it. She ensures there are spaces for relaxation, with ideas for seats and tables, eating outdoors, and creating scenic spots; and she includes suggestions for incorporating art into the garden. The second part of the book, Tranquillity for the Senses, shows how to incorporate soothing colours (from cool white to intense indigo), soothing textures (from smooth pebbles to peeling bark), and light and shade (from dappled sunlight to shadows) into the space. Finally, Scent and Sound discusses fragrant plants and herbs and adds the calming sounds of water, birdsong and leaves rustling in the breeze to your garden.
