Unlimited pleasure, limited space- the imaginative small garden.

Renowned landscape designer Paul Bangay revels in the possibilities of small gardens. In The Boxed Garden he offers illuminating ways to transcend their limitations- a change of level to add excitement, a decorative feature properly placed to create a vista, a paving pattern to lengthen the perspective, a layered planting to lend depth and richness to a setting.

He has a wealth of practical information to impart about developing ground plans and planting schemes; constructing steps, walls, terraces and pools; and choosing appropriate ornamentation, lighting, outdoor furniture and hardy plants to suit Australian conditions and lifestyles. Paul's inspired design solutions are illustrated throughout with detailed accounts of small gardens he has built, and with the exhilarating photography of Simon Griffiths.
