No do-it-yourself homeowner with serious backyard ambitions should be without this design-for-living primer for enhancing the pleasures of the home's outdoor spaces. With a focus on the usual outside activities of playing, gardening and eating, the book offers text, photos and drawings that analyze such structural and planting elements as paving, play areas, vegetable gardens, eating spots and shade options. There is a staggering array of ideas and instuctions, including those for building patio furniture (Adirondack chairs, picnic tables); heating and lighting techniques (including wiring); planning a fish pond; mapping a play area; making a redwood play structure; composting; installing a drip-watering system; tending to flowers; constructing a cold frame; pouring concrete; and erecting a fence. Along the way are helpful charts (Characteristics of Common Outdoor Finishes; Safety Around the Pool), measurements and materials lists for projects and even recipes for outdoor cooking and eating. As a reference compendium, the book is satisfyingly complete.
