The Professional Designer's Guide To Garden Furnishings

Gardens don’t need just plants, paths, and walls; they need chairs, benches, cushions, arbors, containers, and artwork, too. But finding and choosing these accessories can be a challenge. The Professional Designer’s Guide to Garden Furnishings helps you meet the challenge by providing both visual inspiration and practical information about how to choose and where to find just about every kind of accessory a garden might need.This comprehensive guide includes information on how furnishings are linked to architecture; offers tips and techniques for choosing furnishings based on comfort, scale, and proportion; and provides a survey of sixteen popular styles, including Craftsman, Midcentury Modern, and Contemporary. Vanessa Gardner Nagel, herself a professional garden designer as well as a nationally certified interior designer, also discusses the properties of a wide variety of material choices, including wood, stone, ceramics, concrete, metal, and fabrics. An extensive list of sources rounds out this truly indispensable guide.

Vanessa Gardner Nagels book is an excellent guide for homeowners and professional landscape designers alike. Now that we are using our outdoor spaces as rooms and places to sit and relax or host gatherings we are finding we need furnishings that suit the space. I was so inspired and got so many excellent ideas. This book is now part of my resource library.

Awesome guide!Really loved:- The style descriptions- The checklists to evaluate garden materials at the end of each chapter- Detailed analysis of each material type- The diversity of photos Anyway, bravo!Tara

I haven't read it, but I flipped through it and looked at the pictures. The pictures are inspiring. I can not wait until I have a backyard patio to decorate!
