Yard and Garden Makeovers
By

Rating
George and Brian Kay, two dedicated landscape designers and architects, look at multiple aspects of creating an individual landscape that not only reflects the interests of the inhabitants but also provides beauty. Through their years of experience, the Kays look at how a yard is used, what the homeowners enjoy, the feel of the home and neighbourhood to determine a landscape plan that combines form and function. Equally important is the use of natural elements as part of construction, enforcing the unique look of each landscape. The Kays walk readers around the house, discussing what's appropriate for a front yard garden, making liveable areas in the backyard, and attractive and functional walkways and entrances to the home and garage. Key to the book are the before and after shots of the authors' past projects. These makeover images show how a drab but serviceable landscape can be beautifully and logically improved to reflect the owners and add zest and value to the property.
