Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Your yard is a blank canvas just waiting for inventive design and plantings. Enter Holmes (founding editor, Fine Gardening magazine), horticultural consultant and photographer Buchanan (A Weaver's Garden), and Walheim (Citrus), who offer a succession of possible landscaping designs in this neat and polished series. Simple projects such as fencing, arbors, and pathways are logically and clearly illustrated. Each volume is broken down into three parts-"Design Portfolio," "Guide to Installations," and "Plant Portraits"-and each features approximately 50 designs, 200 plants, and 430 photos and paintings. Selection and seasonal care are individualized for the region. These lovely volumes are revisions, with first editions published between 1998 and 2001. Highly recommended but purchase according to your location. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
