Home Outside: Creating the Landscape You Love by Julie Moir Messervy
"Home Outside" is not just another garden or landscape design book. It's a step-by-step approach that lets you see your property with the eyes of a designer, explains concepts in simple, understandable language and offers tips for building the elements so that you can begin to make your property into the home you've always dreamed of. While not everyone wants to spend the time it takes to maintain a beautiful garden, most of us would love to enjoy a welcoming front garden, a back garden that feels like an oasis, a place outside to entertain, a contemplative area, and a way to flow throughout the house and landscape. "Home Outside" explains how to make your property work as well as your house and gives you the perspectives, the information, the techniques and the tips to make your garden an integral part of your home.
