Gardeners' World: 101 Ideas for Small Gardens


Formats & editions


Brilliant ways to make small beautiful

So your garden is more like a landing than a landscape, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make a beautiful, stylish garden from the space and get everything (or almost everything) you need and want from it.

If you’re lacking inspiration, don’t know where to start or are simply stuck on some aspect of your garden, here are the answers you are looking for. In this book, the team at Gardeners’ World Magazine will help you create the perfect small garden for your needs – whether your priority is practical or aesthetic, or a bit of both.

Let the experts guide you to getting the most from your garden: with top tips on making your boundaries seem bigger, breaking up the plot, choosing the right plants for the space, creating storage for all your bits and bobs and a space for enjoying it all after the hard work is done.

So don’t lose the plot when faced with your small space; allow yourself to be inspired, and you can make it the garden of your dreams.
