Really unoriginal designs here, and few that would fit in an average person's yard. If you have anything other than conservative taste, avoid this book. The text is atrocious, with silly side bars about gunniting pools and being sure that you don't leave toddlers near pools unattended. The editors need to get out more, and show some thought-provoking ideas from across the country. The majority of the book looks like it was shot in the same wealthy Northeast neighborhood, though there were a few shots of desert and I saw a palm tree in another. I'm usually a big fan of the Taunton Press, a Fine Homebuilding devotee; this was nowhere near their usual standard. I returned it immediately!
