Too often a deck is visually jarring in the landscape, sometimes looking like an awkward afterthought.
This book tells you how to landscape around and on your deck so that it becomes an appealing link between your home and yard.
It starts with a chapter on customizing your deck's design, and goes on to look at surrounding gardens, container gardens, trellises and arbors, decorating with furniture, and finally suitable deck-side plants.
Profusely illustrated in color, it is filled with many good ideas. A long-overdue book.
Softcover, 9-1/4" x 10", 168 pages, 2002.
