The usefulness of the book will depend upon the individual circumstance, so skimming it first at the library might be a good idea.
Ms. Wingate seems to mostly work in the wetter half of the country, but she has made an honest attempt to be inclusive. There are usable ideas here even for the low desert, but we have had 1/3 inch of rain in the last six months and couldn't afford the water to recreate the plantings in any of the photos. So, fun to see and read but I won't buy this one.
Most of the book is well designed, but whoever approved the light green type of the introduction and the gray type of the picture captions should be convicted of design malpractice. Not at all kind to the eyes. I skipped the intro as prbably not worth the eyestrain.
There is a glossary in back which groups plant types, but no pictures, so what good is that? Another draw back is plantings are dense and complex. Ahhhh...
Maybe a table with two chairs beside a trickling fountain surrounded by a border of fragrant flowers yields just the right touch. Perhaps a dramatic hedge interrupted by a unique gate of rustic wood does the trick. From small concepts to elaborate plans meant for more expansive and expensive tastes, Landscaping for Privacy will help you find that little touch that is uniquely yours.

I found many ideas in this book. One was a way to create natural privary through planting bamboo in containers. I planted them and enjoy the natural screen.Published on September 3, 2013 by Joan
