There can be few things more satisfying than adding an interesting feature to your home that, if properly built, will last a lifetime. Having so convincingly demonstrated the charms of brickwork in "Step-by-Step Outdoor Brickwork", Mike Lawrence has now moved on to provide a detailed and informative book about practical stonework, showing how to create a wide range of both decorative and useful garden structures. Some projects are designed to take just a weekend, while others are more extensive undertakings. Careful preparation and sound planning are vital for successful stonework and the introduction is full of helpful advice. It also offers a selection of design suggestions, all illustrated with full-colour photographs, and outlines the projects covered in later chapters. The projects themselves make up the main body of the book. These are clearly set out and explained with step-by-step instructions to guide you through each stage of construction. Among the projects you can choose from are ponds, paths, planters, steps, patios, rockeries, walls, seats, tables and arches. Full-colour photographs of each major step and of the final effects accompany each project. At the end of the book there is a comprehensive reference section on the tools and materials needed for the projects in the book. It also includes a useful list of suppliers. For both the novice and the accomplished builder, "Step-by-Step Outdoor Stonework" is a reference source, construction manual and source of inspiration. Other titles in this series include "Step-by-Step Outdoor Brickwork" and "Step-by-Step Outdoor Woodwork".
