How many times when we are visiting gardens, or thumbing through a glossy magazine, do we look at our own garden with mixed feelings of disappointment and despair, and exclaim 'Why can`t my garden look like that?'.

The simple answer is `it can`.

This book demonstrates just how easy it is to make adjustments to what is already there to make your garden stunning, whatever its size. Whether it's an issue with design, plant selection or pruning - or even lack of time - simple solutions are described in clear, jargon-free language that will appeal both to the complete novice and those with more experience.

Written in an informal, easy-to-read style this book will enable everyone to have a garden they can be proud of.
