Newburgh Garden North Fife Scotland

The Garden Writers Association of America awarded Garden Stone a 2003 Garden Globe Award of Achievement for Writing. The Washington Post wrote: "Garden Stone is one of the best idea books on using stones in the landscape that I have seen." And Country Living Gardener said: "While the book is visually stunning...diagrams and step-by-step instructions show how gardeners can make their dreams come true." Garden Stone capitalizes on a hot trend in landscaping: adding stone to bring texture, colour, serenity, and strength to the garden. Author Barbara Pleasant offers gardeners more than 40 enchanting designs -from something as simple as a flagstone path to an elaborate Zen-inspired meditation garden. But this is not just a picture book. Each project is packed with practical, down-to-earth installation advice, including clear line-drawings and instructional diagrams. Furthermore, an up-to-date resource list helps do-it-yourselfers find the tools and materials they need. Both practical and inspirational, Garden Stone shows any gardener how stone can add enduring beauty to any landscape. Here in Newburgh North Fife, a stony place anyway, practical use has been achieved.
Even in Scotland quite exotic plant species thrive for example.
