Clever ideas and imaginative solutions from BBC Gardeners’ World host Adam Frost to help you transform your garden, element by element, into a personalized dream space.
Adam shows how small plantings, design flourishes, hands-on creative projects, and simple hard landscaping projects can help transform your garden. Taking an artisan’s approach to his own garden, Adam emphasizes how you too can find inspiration and turn it into a garden feature, how to personalize your ideas – using what you already have – and upcycling. There’s something to suit everyone’s taste, space, and budget.
Each project starts with Adam's inspiration, and then walks the reader through how he created the end product with clear step-by-step photography and instructions. Adam shows that inspiration doesn't have to come from other gardens. In fact, for him, it rarely does. It could be a natural feature such as a heap of wood, something you already own, or a salvage yard item you can upcycle. With a little work and a dash of imagination, you can create something truly personal in the garden and create the atmosphere you want, while developing your skills and enjoying the creative process.
Well known for his straightforward, clear presentation, and his award-winning design ideas, Adam combines these skills to offer realistic, achievable, impactful suggestions for transforming your space. Element by element, a weekend at a time, he can help you create the garden you’ve always wanted.
