Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Need a perfect place to baby new seedlings for your garden? This lovely book tries to deliver but falls short. Price (The Complete and Easy Guide to Stargazing) and Greer, author of a number of decorating and design books, include good details on design considerations, emphasizing site requirements and user needs, with insightful pros and cons for different styles. But all the beautiful pictures of garden spaces and structures lead up to merely four construction projects, including instructions for kit assembly and a copy of a design first seen in the publisher's Black & Decker the Complete Guide to Contemporary Sheds. The gorgeous gallery of examples creates expectations that are not realized in this book. Still, greenhouse books are few, so purchase where needed.

    Great Info

    It's full of ideas and things to consider. There's even a link to free greenhouse software. Also, it has a lot of pictures to help the reader to see the possibilities.
