Having tackled a few small home improvement projects, the Black & Decker Complete Photo Guide to Outdoor Building book appealed to develop my understanding from there. Particularly, we have several garden paths which need renewing and I appreciate the clear explanation and photos which makes the process so much easier to understand.

There are various projects in the book and several have inspired future projects including a deck and free-standing arch which I hope to try out in the future. Whilst I wasn’t able to action any of it yet, I found the instructions simple and easy to follow. I look forward to referring to it in the future. It’s a five out of five on the en-JOY-ment scale.

BLACK+DECKER™ Home How-To Outdoor Building is jam-packed with popular projects for better backyard living. From building an attached wood deck or a patio to designing and creating a shed or pergola, you’ll see exactly how to get the job done in this illustrated guidebook. 

Complete plans, including 
technical illustrations and even cutting and shopping lists, will lead you through the building process, punctuated by clear step-by-step photographs and how-to descriptions.

If you value entertaining, recreating, or growing vegetables and flowers in your own yard, you will find everything you need to 
create the structures and hardscaping that support your interests. The projects are all selected based on more than 30 years of publishing BLACK+DECKER™ books for the home DIYer. The most requested and most frequently chosen backyard projects are all included.

If you are ready to up your backyard game, Outdoor Building is just the spark you need to get started.

I received a complimentary copy of the book from Cool Springs Press through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
