Few books that deal specifically with the issue of front gardens, though of course there are many books about gardening generally. Because this is a very popular area for publishing, many gardening books focus on particular gardening philosophies, such as organic gardening or gardening with a specific purpose in mind such as producing food. We will aim to point out books that are particularly helpful for those wishing to design, improve and maintain their front gardens.
We will also include some books that deal with domestic architecture, especially historic styles, as the presentation of the front of the building itself and the way it is adapted and maintained are important to the overall front-of-house effect. The design and period of the house might suggest the kind of elements that can be used in the garden to compliment the architecture.
