Description of this Book

Gardens, just like houses, sometimes need a makeover. The change can be as minor as replacing a shrub or as major as pulling everything out and starting from scratch. No matter the size of your space or the scope of your project, you ll find sage advice in Garden Renovation. Bobbie Schwartz draws on her years of experience as a garden designer to teach homeowners how to evaluate the plants and feature present in their yard, how to determine what to keep and what to remove, and how to choose the right plants and design plans for a successful remodel. A gallery of before and after gardens provide ideas and inspiration for turning a tired garden into an enlivening retreat.
