Format: Paperback
I decided to check out Better Homes and Gardens Beds and Borders because I like the magazine and need some ideas for flower beds on the front of my house and by my patio. The book contains sketches of a plant layout and plant list for different plans along with a sketch of what the garden would look like at maturity.
There are sections on:
Containers
Soultions for various sites- shady, drought, slopes
Color Combo Ideas
Roses
Cottage Gardens
Formal Gardens
Entrances
Edible
Attracting Birds and Hummingbirds

Overall I thought that the book had some nice ideas, but there were only a few pages devoted to creating a bed to go around your house. Most of the bed ideas are for floating beds or beds that would sit on their own. I think that this book is worth checking out from the library, but I don't see that it would be that valuable for buying. The BHG website has lots of plans you can look at online and if you have ever looked at those this is a fairly similar concept.

Although I have been gardening for a few years now, I still consider myself a novice gardener. I love this book because it helps me be more organized in my design for the yard. The pictures are beautiful and I love the drawn design plans. Very good information and well organized and laid out. If you like BHG and are a novice to intermediate gardener, you might find this book as helpful as I do.

I just bought a large (50' x 150') empty lot next door to me and needed ideas to "dress it up". Since I wanted to do primarily perennials, this book is a godsend! There are plans for several different beds/borders for all kinds of locations. Since this lot is partly in full sun, partial shade and full shade I now have solutions for each of these areas! I'm not going to do everything at once, just as I can afford it, but I now can have a comprehensive plan for everything.
