    This is a keeper for the landscape designer library!

    I ordered this book for my Landscape design class. It is jam packed with helpful information to the beginning designer. There is a lot more than meets the eye to creating a pleasing design for the client. This book gives a very detailed perspective of the process thru all steps, start to finish. I still have much to learn, but I will definitely be referring back to this book often as I finish my schooling.
