This is a very comprehensive book describing all western regions including the low and high desert, the Pacific Northwest and southern California. The book includes many landscape ideas with diagrams and suggested plant types and many plant photos. Ideas for special needs such as privacy, patio & small spaces , desert areas, swimming pools, decks, lots for shade, low water and other requirements are covered. Types of fencing and decking are also covered. If you are starting out with a bare backyard, as I am, this is the book for you!

If you get Sunset the magazine, you probably don't need this book. The book has some beautiful pictures of varied landscape types in varied climates and some general planting suggestions (like the magazine). But, also like the magazine, unless you have $50K-$100K lying around, good luck pulling any of these things off. I say get the magazine because you can get the landscaping ideas, seasonally relevant planting suggestions along with some nice recipes, gardening and traveling tips.

Anytime I am tired of working on my housing projects I can look through this book and get excited again.

I didn't find much useful advice or How-To in here, so if that's what you want there are much better books out there.

For my purposes it is perfect: Inspiration and beautiful pictures.

The info in there is OK, but don't buy it for that or you will be disappointed.

This book has some really good ideas for gardening and landscaping in the desert. Anyone who lives in the desert knows what a challenge it is to grow a beautiful garden AND be a good steward of the limited, precious resources. The only negative comment is that the garden examples are mostly from California. It would be more helpful to me if there were more examples and discussion on high desert gardening in places like Santa Fe and Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I've purchased several landscaping books recently, and this is by far my favorite. There are hundreds of pictures for inspiration, so I often flip through it when I'm feeling bored. The organizational style is very user-friendly, which makes it easy to find ideas for specific landscaping projects. I really like the lists they include of their favorite types of plants for certain settings (broken down by region and specific use). The garden plans are very nice; however, they don't include dimensions, which would be extremely helpful. Overall a very valuable household resource. It also makes an excellent housewarming gift.

Not a lot of planting or landscaping tips in the book, but it's great for a coffee table, or flipping through to get inspired. While I realize that Western landscaping includes a variety of climates, I would have preferred more desert landscaping.
