A simple bench or a charming birdbath, a graceful trellis or a weathered fountain--the right ornament in the right place can transform any garden into a lush, private Eden. Whether you have a classic suburban backyard, a small country garden, or a high-rise terrace with a city view,Garden Ornamentsshows you how to select and position the perfect furniture and ornaments for any garden.          Renowned gardener Martha Baker looks at a variety of beautiful gardens, accompanied by detail shots of furniture and ornaments, and supplies inventive but practical design tips and how-to projects, such as building a trellis or antiquing an urn. Each chapter focuses on a popular garden style--Classical, Waterside, Urban, Romantic, Rustic, Gallery, or Whimsical--and spotlights key pieces that help create these wonderful spaces. Opening up a new world of design options, Martha Baker guides you in choosing the right furniture and ornaments for your own garden--from such simple objects as urns, folding bistro chairs, or candle lanterns to more exuberant gestures like a steel topiary, a wrought-iron chandelier, or a trellis strung with lights. And to further aid you in selecting the perfect pieces, an extensive resource section not only lists garden centers, stores, and outlets, but also showcases the best garden ornaments available--bringing your own Eden closer to home.          With hundreds of gorgeous photographs by Martha's husband, Chuck Baker, and a wealth of useful information and how-to advice,Garden Ornamentsis a boundless source of inspiration, sure to delight and instruct any gardener.
