We were looking for ideas for our backyard. We won't be doing the work ourselves, but we need to come up with what we want. So I wasn't looking for a do-it-yourself with step by step instructions. As the title states, we were looking for an idea book, and this one fit the bill. Two thumbs up.

The New Backyard Idea Book is a great book to add to your permanent library. Whether you need a small container garden for apartment living, a modest plan for a city lot or a coordinated design for several garden "rooms," this book will lovingly illustrate a host of different design options. Well written with magnificent photographs showcasing the flavor of each garden element. Inspired by some of the water features, pergola ideas and seating options, I think a visit to my local greenhouse and garden store is definitely in the offing this weekend! Excellent for coffee table and schools, too.

I was looking for basic design options for a family just starting out in their first home. The idea presented are good, but not what I needed.

just like buying new , but better price. Great for ideas in the front and back yard to choose from and very clear

Gave me some ideas, but this book could only be fully utilized by people with big fancy houses and lots of money.

Excellent condition, very usefull garden tool. Easy to follow tips and step by step instructions. Yes, I do recomend this book.
