Backyard Makeovers shows you how to take a dated, old or impractical garden and turn it into an attractive, multi-functional outdoor living space that will enhance your family's lifestyle and improve the value of your home. Learn how to transform a space with new paving and decking, light your garden to perfection, modernise an existing swimming pool and create a pet-friendly backyard.
Seeing, of course, is believing, which is why we have included 15 ‘before and after’ garden profiles to show you what kind of transformation can be achieved with the aid of a garden designer and landscape contractor. The gardens profiled have been taken from around the country and cover the gamut of garden styles. These ‘before and after’ projects are a great source of information on plants, products and materials, not to mention a wellspring of design ideas that you can adapt to your own garden makeover.
