Books Info:

Paths, Steps and Patios for the Garden free pdf Building a path, a flight of steps or a patio can dramatically alter the design and visual impact of your garden. A path winding out of sight behind a hedge invites exploration and imparts an air of mystery while steps suggest other areas of the garden to be explored. Although such structures have a clear function, it is vital that they are also visually pleasing. With this in mind "Paths, Steps and Patios" presents 16 original projects, ranging from a simple natural stone patio to a decorative Victorian path. Materials used include brick, stone, wooden tiles and green wood.Each has been photographed step-by-step during construction and the finished piece is shown in its garden setting. Clear construction diagrams and concise text accompany every project. With expert advice and information on designing and planning, tools, materials and techniques, this is both an attractive and accessible practical DIY book.
