Terraces and Roof Gardens of Paris PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Terraces and Roof Gardens of Paris free pdf Often unsuspected by passers-by in the street below, the rooves of Paris are rich in secret garden life. Hanging between the city and the sky, these curious gardens high above the urban traffic are a haven of peace and tranquility to those fortunate to have access to their many hidden treasures. Authors Alexandra d'Arnoux and Bruno de Laubadere take the reader on a voyage of discovery in the heart of the city, yet a million miles distant from the stresses and strains of city life. The owners of these green oases in the gray of the city have revealed their secrets and experiences: how they choose their plants, how they succeed in creating and maintaining a luscious green universe in such a hostile environment, what their roof garden means to them. Lavishly illustrated throughout, Terraces and Roof Gardens of Paris provides a visual treat and a source of inspiration for all those interested in gardening in a city environment, or who simply dream of a private space of their own, away from the mad whirl of modern life in a great metropolis.
