I moved to NC in 2015 after living in Colorado all my life. Tried picking flowers and plants on my own but found I had problems due to climate a season change issues. Dirt in NC is so much softer and workable than the rocks in Colo. It's more fertile too. I needed help so I ordered some books to help me. This one was just what I needed!!

Don't buy this book. The typeface is too small, the margins run into the gutter, and the layout is sloppy and cheap. (Shadow printing of plants on some pages make it illegible under the teeny, crowded printing.) Not to mention having to break the spine to hold the book open to read to the glue.Content is trite and poor. I suppose when all you do is gather articles you are not allowed to edit someone else's writing but that speaks to what you choose to include. Or not.Needless to say I am steamed about this book being so poorly done in all aspects. So I'm going to return it.

This was a used book but in excellent condition. The mailing arrived a lot sooner than expected. A nice surprise in mail order irems. I found the contents very useful as I've just moved to NC from the fridged north and have a large yard to improve.

Nice looking, well laid out, good size, lots of info. Glad to have the information.

Bought a new house. This book has been a great guide for establishing my lawn and garden!! Thanks so much for this!!
