The following chapters look at ways of enlivening, or disguising unpleasant aspects of a gardens perimeters; how to make the most of both light and shade; the best ground surface substitutes for grass and paving; and ideas taken from stage designs to create theatrical effects in a garden, as well as how to rearrange space for a garden party.
