Ornamental features, whether purely decorative, like statues and urns, or practical as well, like containers, paving and seating - are the most immediate way of giving a small garden a distinctive character. Using ornament is easy even for novice gardeners who want to create an instant effect. Using a wealth of inspiring examples and clear guidelines, Roy Strong shows exactly how to choose from the whole range of ornament available - from traditional to contemporary, from extravagant to affordable - and explains where and how to place them in the garden to create the most telling and stylish effects.
