Gardens for the Soul shows how a sustainable and eco-friendly ethos can be at the heart of creating a beautiful garden, whatever its location or size.
There are a multitude of different ways in which we use our outside spaces, and in Gardens for the Soul Sara Bird and Dan Duchars explore ways to create and style an outdoor haven that will suit your lifestyle. Day Dreamers seek solitude and a therapeutic experience, while Home Harvesters use their garden space to grow flowers or fruit and veggies, Garden Partiers put their outside space to work as an entertaining zone for friends and family, and Great Escapers aim to recreate a chilled vacation vibe at home. Sara and Dan visit real-life yards that fall into these categories, from tiny patios to larger spaces, to glean ideas, tips, and inspiration. With a focus on sustainability and reclaimed materials, there are suggestions for choosing garden elements, from décor to lighting to furnishings and accessories, as well as easy craft projects that add quirky personal touches.
