I'm a new home owner, never gardened before and had no clue what I was doing. I read this book before I started landscaping and I feel it helped a tremendous amount. It taught me everything from how to use my property survey in sketching out ideas to drawing up my garden plans to what plants to plant and why.It was a good laid out book and easy to follow with step by step guides. I felt very confident when it came time to actually doing the work after reading the book. And you know what? My yard and garden turned out better than I thought.... all because this book gave me the know how.
This book is valuable for planning a landscape, both in the graphics aspect and the practical planning process. I have used this as a textbook in my "Basic Landscape Design" community college course for a number of years, and it has been well received. The photos and the text go well together in explaining the basics of landscape design and planning.
