This book shows many plans for dividing your property into outdoor "rooms" or areas for different purposes. What I like about the book is that details of the elements of good design are discussed, lots of plans for different yards are shown, and many different styles of gardens in different parts of the world are discussed. DIfferent aspects of constructing gardens are discussed in detail, and there is a good bibliography for more information. If you're interested in the concept of landscaping with different "rooms", this book's for you.

Most garden books I just look at all the pictures and read lightly. This one is different. It's a very smart and useful guide for doing your yard space in the most attractive and efficient way. It's taking me a while to get through it because it is full.

I bought this book when I started thinking about new landscaping for our backyard. It gave me many great ideas. It is full of sensible, practical advice and also of creative inspiration.

Nice enough book but thin and not for Florida. Besides, If you are an avid gardener you don't need this sort of tome. No disrespect, but these books are more for decorators than gardeners.
