Garden Mosaics: 25 Step-by-Step Projects for Your Outdoor Room

Available to purchase at CICO Books


One of the most long-lasting and hard-wearing artforms, mosaic pieces are the perfect way to make the most of your garden. Suitable for a tiny terrace or a large country expanse, the projects in Garden Mosaics show you how to decorate your outdoor space in a charming, individual and enduring way.

The extensive techniques section shows you how to choose and use the right tiles for your environment. The range of tiles on the market today is better than ever; and this book makes the most of the wealth of new materials available such as spangled tiles or inexpensive, but authentic gold-leaf tiles. As you progress, you can develop your own creativity with tips on tile and color-matching that allow you to adapt the projects to make pieces completely unique to you and your garden.

All suitable for beginners, the 25 projects in the book range from simple decorative pieces such as the enchanting, simple child’s footprints and butterfly stones to practical and sturdy weatherproof pieces, including a trompe l’oeil checkered mosaic tabletop and delightful planters that will add color to your garden events in winter. Some projects, like the night light can be completed in under two hours!
