Stone, Rock & Gravel Gardens by Kathryn Bradley-Hole
A practical guide to creating stone, rock and gravel gardens. It explores the texture, colour and shape of garden rocks, showing how to combine them successfully with water, outdoor structures and a wide variety of plants. Drawing upon the influence of Eastern gardens and the contemporary work of designers such as Andy Goldsworthy, the author considers both formal and informal settings and key features, including scree, dry rivers, raised beds and potted rock gardens. There is also detailed practical advice on laying stone paving and gravel pathways, building a rock garden and creating water features.
