House Beautiful: Outdoor Living & Gardens by Elvin McDonald

When we think of outdoor living, we remember the special times -- a family picnic under the shade of an old oak, a Sunday morning spent harvesting ripe strawberries, quiet moments reading on the porch, a late afternoon dip in the pool. Across America, homeowners are discovering the potential of outdoor living by transforming their yards into thoughtfully designed rooms furnished with plants, pools & garden structures. The key to enjoying outdoor living to its fullest is customizing a space to meet with personal needs. In Outdoor Living & Gardens, readers are taken on a tour of homes in locations as diverse as the American heartland & the French countryside, the Florida coast & the Connecticut hills. More than 250 photographs depict imaginative & stylish design strategies that homeowners have used to create outdoor rooms that serve a variety of needs, from entertaining to gardening. Each chapter of Outdoor Living & Gardens, addresses a unique design challenge of a property. Included is advice on landscaping & selecting plantings that harmonize with different styles of homes, ways to add special touches that extend a welcome to visitors & ideas for swimming pools, gazebos & old-fashioned wrap-around porches. This wide selection of homes & yards embodies the House Beautiful style & approach to living outdoors. For those with a gardening spirit & others who wish simply to create a pleasant environment in which to relax outdoors, Outdoor Living & Gardens, will inspire, delight & inform.
