Trees, Shrubs & Hedges For Your Home: Secrets For Selection And Care (Landscaping)

Landscape professionals regard trees, shrubs, and hedges as the "bones," or essential framework, of any landscape design. The trick is to select the best plants for your growing conditions - plants that also look good together. Full-color throughout, this complrehensive guide shows the reader how to do that and more, while also providing descriptions of over 1,000 of the best plants - "best" because they're beautiful, low-maintenance, pest- and disease-resistant, and available at local nurseries and home centers.

This book might be good if you live on the east coast but I live in Colorado and NONE of the trees that are common out here are anywhere in this book.

Great book for anyone wanting to know more about trees, shrubs and hedges. It's been invaluable i helping me landscape my garden.

This book does not include many common shrubs and trees. Good for beginners but not a complete book for gardening and landscaping. I wish was.

Bought it for class and very pleased that it will stay as a reference book.

The person who received this gift seemed to be genuinely pleased with it. Of course, we'll know more once there's been more time to go through it, but the first impressions were great.

It had everything I needed as I am a novice about shrubs and it will be very helpful in the future. I actually got it for my son's birthday and now want a copy for myself.

This book helps to choose new shrubery
