Creating a successful garden often calls for basic DIY skills, such as carpentry and bricklaying. This text presents various design options and provides the reader with step-by-step instructions for carrying out each task, from installing fencing to building a retaining wall for a terrace. The pros and cons of garden materials are analyzed in terms of cost, appearance, durability and maintenance. There is a section on tools and basic techniques, from carpentry joints to timber treatments. The main body of the text explores numerous procedures for more than 50 different projects, ranging from steps, fences, walls and terraces, to the more difficult tasks of building water features, rockeries or freestanding wooden structures.
