This early work on landscape gardening is a fascinating read for the gardener and historian alike, but also contains much information and anecdote that is still useful and practical today. All the work described is well within the scope of the ordinary man or woman with no previous experience, and no tools will be required that are not in the ordinary household toolbox. Extensively illustrated with working diagrams. Contents Include: Laying Out the Plot - "Labour-saving" Gardens - Stone Edging - Wood Edging - Laying Out the Lawn - The Oval or Circular Lawn - The House Step; Crazy Paving: Imitation Crazy Paving; Bird Baths and Sundials; Non-Rustic Screens and Arches - A Rectangular Trellis Screen - A Semi-Circular Trellis Screen - "Rising Sun" Trellis - A Trellis Fringe - A Trellise Window - Arches - A Four-Way Arch - An Arch Pergola; Rustic Work - Rustic Summerhouses; Garden Furniture: Seats, Tables, Etc. - A Simple Garden Seat - Garden Chairs - A Garden Table; and Ornamental Ponds. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
