RHS Essential Garden Planning & ConstructionRHS Essential Garden Planning & Construction

Edited by Christopher Brickell and Deborah Parker
Published by Mitchell Beazley
Distributed by Hachette
$NZ49.99

This book is a spin-off from the Royal Horticultural Society's Encyclopedia of Practical Gardening, bringing together the principles vital for success­ful garden planning with explanations on how to put them into practice.

The book takes a hands-on approach and is furnished with lots of step-by-step diagrams.

It's divided into two sections: Planning and Construction. Under the latter there are plenty of detailed ideas - from building gates, pergolas and paths, to putting in a water feature. This is not a book about planting, though. Rather, it concentrates on getting the bare bones just right.
