Small Space Gardens

David Stevens
Conrad Octopus, distributed by Reed
$NZ69.95; $AUS55

A GARDEN, however small, is a blessing. A green oasis in the heart of town, a country courtyard, a roof terrace perched high above the city all have their own charm, purpose and unique character. The small garden is not a place for fashion that quickly palls, but somewhere to exercise our imagination, needs and passions.

This English-published hardback takes you easily through the entire planning sequence of good garden design to help you create a garden that feels spacious and appealing. It is essential reading for anyone with even a square metre of outside space.

David Stevens is one of the leading contemporary gardening designers in the world, and his company, David Stevens International, is one of the largest design practices in the UK with strong links in America, South Africa and Israel.

Practical, informative and featuring case studies that reinforce all aspects of the text, Small Space Gardens demystifies garden design to help you create a garden that feels spacious and appealing.
