Rock gardens have the potential to be sustainable and low-maintenance while still providing great color and texture. For gardeners looking for an introduction to rock gardening, Tychonievich’s book is a great start.” —NYBG's Plant Talk
“Everything you could want to know about this subject including behind-the-scenes technical direction at renowned botanical gardens, humble “rockeries,” and hypertufa trough gardens is here. . . . This is a book for amateurs as well as professionals interested in an educational look at this precise kind of gardening, and it is all delivered with colorful photographs and in Tychonievich’s enlightening, instructive prose.” —Country Gardens
“This book takes a very practical approach to an iconic style of gardening. . . . The experienced author succeeds in succinctly communicating his enthusiasm for this garden style.

“If you’re a designer who might have to create or deal with this type of landscape then this book is a good starting point. . . . it’s comprehensive in its coverage of the topic with case studies both in the UK and America, descriptions of the different types of rock garden, how to achieve the right soil conditions and manage drainage. The most useful element for designers is the final ‘plant profile’ section, which focuses on alpines and other plants that thrive in similar conditions.” —The Garden Design Journal
“There is also just the right amount of helpful and deliberately plainspoken information. . . . I wish I'd had this book 20 years ago: it would have saved me from many mistakes. Buy it for the gardener you love.” —Literati Bookstore
“Discusses stunning examples in a variety of locations. . . . Between a rock and a hard place is sometimes where the most enchanting flowers bloom. That incongruous truth helps account for the ageless appeal of rock gardens.” —The Columbus Dispatch
