Brickwork for the Garden by Alan Bridgewater
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The simple brick is a universal building material that can be used in a variety of ways to create stunning effects. Used in the garden, brickwork can take the form of anything from a functional pathway to a decorative feature wall and can dramatically alter the design and visual impact of an outdoor space. A pair of simple gateway columns welcomes visitors while a brick-edged pond provides a place for contemplation. While some structures have a clear function, it is vital that they are also visually pleasing and decorative. With this in mind "Brickwork for the Garden" presents 16 original projects, ranging from a simple garden wall to a beautiful raised herringbone patio.Each has been photographed step-by-step during construction and the finished piece is shown in its garden setting. Clear construction diagrams and concise text accompany every project. A comprehensive techniques section provides expert advice and information on designing, planning, tools, materials, foundations, concrete, mortar and cutting and laying brick. This is both an attractive and accessible practical DIY book.
