British garden writers Joan Clifton and Jenny Hendy offer advice on the design and construction of a variety of structures for contemporary gardens. Some case studies are along traditional lines, while others have themes designed to attract the reader’s attention for a shorter length of time. Although the title suggests that the patio, terrace, backyard, or courtyard will have all-season appeal, they have not met this objective convincingly. Even though there are attractive segments, this book does not fulfill expectations.
