The backyard to a home represents vital outdoor space where life happens. In this book the author shows how to make the most of the area and create a haven of peace (or fun). The backyard makes an important link between the house and the wider garden or may constitute the whole garden. Even if the house walls cast shadows for most of the day and the soil is poor, this book has masses of tricks for bringing the space alive with plants and turning it into a green paradise.
