General Gardens | Warwick Mather


This work offers a practical and informative guide to achieving the maximum from your garden in the minimum of time. It aims to help those with limited patience, with little time to spare for gardening chores, to achieve positive results in as short a space of time as possible. The book features six original schemes for complete gardens ranging from the one-season formal garden to an instant, low-maintenance woodland garden. Chapters cover all the many materials and strutures suitable for use in a fast garden, taking into account the short cuts gardener's need for instant height, and immediate impression of maturity and a minimum of maintenance. Short cut strategies are presented as mini-headlines at the start of each topic. These are super-fast planting schemes for a range of different sites, and there is information on the fastest plants to choose in the plant guide.
