Garden designer, lecturer and broadcaster Matt James explores how to design an urban outdoor space, no matter the size or location - from balconies and roof terraces to courtyards, basement areas and front gardens, factoring in areas for relaxation, play and growing your own produce.
There are 16 step-by-step projects including creating a 'living' green wall, planting under mature trees and making a gravel garden and 13 case studies showing great design in action, with examples from Tom Stuart-Smith, Charlotte Rowe and Christopher Bradley-Hole.
Award-winning photographer Marianne Majerus provides the visual inspiration.
