Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The popularity of stone in landscaping projects continues to be on the rise in the United States, where until only recently wood dominated as the preferred choice of building material for decks, patios, and garden walls. This book teems with stunning photos of landscapes fully embracing this natural material. The instructions are meticulous but easy to follow, and since there are so many ways to "stonescape" and quite a few new terms to learn, the detailed index and glossary will come in handy.
