Issue No. 28 of Garden Making magazine for winter 2016-17 focuses on designing gardens for small spaces. We asked five Canadian designers to provide plans on how to turn a small space into a plant-filled, yet practical, paradise. Their ideas and suggestions can easily be adapted to the dimensions and objectives for your garden area.
On the cover is a scene from the garden of Phyllis Tresidder in Hamilton, Ontario. The garden is profiled in the issue with photos by Roger Yip and the story of the garden is told by Phyllis to Liz Primeau. The garden was included on the Grand Durand Garden Tour in 2016, which is organized by the Durand Neighbourhood Association located in the historic southwest section of Hamilton. Tour organizer Janice Brown says Phyllis’s garden was one of the favourites of the more than 800 visitors on the tour.
