This unique new book combines gardening and crafts in a practical guide to creating handcrafted features for your garden. Every major craft is covered, including mosaic, metal, wire, glass, pebble, wood, coppice work, and willow. There are ideas for both practical and ornamental features, including decorative pebble paths, hanging glass panels, mosaic pools, wooden whirligigs, driftwood furniture, and willow sculptures.

"Garden Crafts" describes the historical origins of each craft; the diversity of objects that can be made for the garden; materials -- new and recycled -- and where to get them; paints and other finishes; design considerations such as placement and associated planting; and tools and techniques.

Each chapter concludes with two projects to create for your own garden, along with a list of materials required, step-by-step construction techniques, and beautiful color photographs of the finished project in a garden setting.
