Creating a terrace or rooftop paradise

This city-dwellers guide to gardening shows how less is actually more, especially when it comes to creating one's own terrace and rooftop paradise. With ten sample gardens to choose from, including the plans for each, this practical guide describes every aspect of urban gardening-from design for roofs, screening and framing, gardening without soil to containers, furniture, and decorations and special effects. Full of overall and close-up photos of each garden, this magazine-style guide will show any apartment dweller how to create their very own Eden-with a garden of ferns and bamboos and vegetables and herbs only footsteps away.
