This book looks pretty flashy and features some expensive professional landscapes but. . . I actually found the principals to be really helpful. I feel like I can apply the ideas and concepts to my own backyard. Even the pictures have provided some potential ideas. I have checked it out three times while I plan my "big moves." Happy gardening!

In my next lifetime I'm going to be RICH! I would love to implement at least a dozen of these landscape ideas-- some are simple suggestions and others are on a big scale. The photography is fabulous--sit down with a glass of wine and dream.
