I have used both this book and the one for the Mid-Atlantic region (when I lived down there), and they are excellent for first-time gardeners or experienced gardeners. This book takes all the guesswork out of figuring out what plants will do well in your region. A must-have book!!

Perfect for someone who's not sure where to begin, and what designs and plants are appropriate for their area. Five stars!

This was one of the first books I purchased on my journey to landscape my own empty yard. It is outstanding! It has great pictures and lists only plants that do well in a particular region. I found the designs to be very attractive.
