When working at the Nursery or on a landscape project this book is at my side. Very educational for myself and my customers. i show photos to customers often to expand on their short list of potential ground covers for numerous landscape settings. So whether you are a landscape professional or a homeowner looking for design options, the photos, descriptions and convenient book size make this book a must have for all.

I have a half dozen books on ground covers, and this is the one I reference most. Very comprehensive, and there are photos for every plant described.
