Beautiful designed Modern Country small gardens have always stolen my heart.

There's so much that can be done with a diminutive plot. Every inch can be smothered in love. See what I mean with any one of these gorgeous pretties....

Two of my favourite small garden books are Garden Designer veteran John Brookes' Small Garden....


...and Designing Small Gardens by Ian Cooke.


John Brookes' Small Garden is a more comprehensive tome but Ian Cooke's is perfect for popping in a bag, or reading on the way to work.

Designing Small Gardens feels a little more comforting, as though someone in the know is holding your hand through the process, whilst Small Garden bombards you with fantastic information on every page.

Both books cover recommnded planting, hard landscaping and case studies but win very different ways.

Small Garden and Designing Small Gardens (click through to buy) are brilliant, yes, but even better when used together!
