Editorial Reviews

Jacki Cammidge
This e-book is perfect for planning your landscaping. The points that Susan makes about choosing the plants are known by landscape designers, horticulturists and other professionals, not so much the general public.

Susan goes into great detail about what to plant where, to get a well balanced and beautiful landscaping plan. Using the guidelines in this book will get you well ahead when it comes to your design!
