Want to breathe new life into your back yard? Ev­ery day in your log home can feel like a sigh of re­lief when you in­cor­po­rate good out­door de­sign. In Easy Week­end Back­yard Re­treat, decades of ex­pe­ri­ence in gar­den de­sign, hard­scape plan­ning and plant se­lec­tion are amassed into one re­source that’s as stun­ningly beau­ti­ful as it is prac­ti­cal and in­for­ma­tive.

Scores of rich color pho­tos, from man­i­cured grounds to nat­u­ral, lush land­scapes, will both in­spire and in­form you (plant species are clearly iden­ti­fied). Cre­ate an out­door es­cape that in­cludes zones for din­ing, con­ver­sa­tion, read­ing and re­lax­ing. Il­lus­trated gar­den plans give you de­tailed, easy-to-fol­low in­struc­tions. There are even tips to keep costs down, dress up your deck, add water fea­tures, build your own planters from re­pur­posed pal­lets and cre­ate artis­tic ar­range­ments of pot­ted plants so you can give your log home’s ex­te­rior that pro-de­signer touch.

Whether your prop­erty (or your bud­get) is small or sprawl­ing, this gor­geous guide will show you how to make the most of it.
