Drawn from her own experiences of creating sensational gardens all over the world, Bunny Guiness presents surfaces and boundaries, colour shades and paint finishes, garages and garden sheds, gates and fences that strike an adventurous and truly contemporary note. Many of the ideas require a simple lick of paint while other more detailed projects provide full how-to information putting simple brickwork, garden trellis making and willow weaving into everyone's grasp. Based on the belief that even the most unpromising garden space can, with the right handling, project a uniquely individual character, Garden Transformations pushes back the boundaries of garden design while at the same time proposing gardens that are practical to live with and reflect their owners' personal style.

This book was not really what I expected. I expected more before and after whole garden transformations, but it was more focused on individual aspects of the garden and yard. There was a lot of focus on painting or lime washing various items around the garden. Generally, the photos and ideas seemed geared more for Northeast/midwest gardens, or traditional European and English gardens than Southern California.
