Transform your landscape into an extension of your home with this innovative new approach to garden design and outdoor decorating-showing how to create the perfect setting for any home.

Well-designed outdoor space enhances the appeal and functionality of any home by making the house look complete and seamlessly integrated into its setting. Would a woodland garden work with a stone farmhouse? Would a flagstone walkway suit a brick Colonial? This one-of-a-kind book shows how to transform outdoor space into an extension of the home by matching landscape design to house style. In Homescaping, noted garden writer Anne Halpin:
o Explores different garden styles and offers guidelines on which sorts of houses each garden style suits best
o Shows the way to mix and match the colors of paint and building materials with flower and plant colors
o Looks at options for paths, patios, decks, walls, fences, and hedges; outdoor structures like arbors, pergolas, gazebos, and sheds; and outdoor furniture, lighting, water features, ornaments, and plant containers
Providing a fresh new perspective on home improvement, Homescaping is perfect for homeowners wanting to beautifully complement their home.

Very good book discussing the ways to get your garden to complement the architecture of your house. Made me realize that the reason my garden never looked great is because I'm mixing too many elements at once.

Now I have to decide what direction were going to take the house color in before we move on.
