Gardens are very much an extension of the home, and with the popularity of reclaiming, re-using and re-inventing rather than buying brand new items, now is the time to embrace the value of outdoor salvage. Your garden deserves just as much thought as your interior when it comes to design and decoration – Gardenalia provides the inspiration and the know-how for creating a perfect outdoor room.
In the first section of the book Sally Coulthard guides you through the myriad choices of recycled and reclaimed materials and objects you can employ in your garden to inject style and personality. Gardenalia can be introduced in many forms, from recycled wooden fences and charming old gates, to reclaimed brick for paths and edging, and metal plant supports, pergolas and arches. Statuary and ornaments offer decorative devices and design focal points. All types of furniture – from classical benches to weatherbeaten tables and retro deckchairs – can create stylish areas for dining and relaxing, while containers and second-hand tools provide the perfect finishing touches.
The second section covers a wide variety of garden spaces, taking in potagers, vintage and formal style gardens, relaxing spaces, container gardening, colourful corners, potting sheds, spaces for work and play and even animal sanctuaries for wildlife and pets. However you enjoy your garden, a host of inventive ideas show you how to breathe new life and uses into salvaged pieces.
Whether you want to plan a small entertaining area or embellish your borders, Gardenalia offers practical guidance for the perennial garden tasks of planning your space, incorporating seating and eating areas and creating exciting backdrops and structures for your plants.
