This third edition of outdoor/home-improvement author Cory's (Barbecues & Outdoor Kitchens) book on garden structures has been expanded to include 250 new photographs and an additional chapter on techniques. While some of the featured 40-odd projects, which range in difficulty from easy to sophisticated, are inventive-e.g., a hammock arbor, copper trellises-others are familiar. Unfortunately, the instructions are a bit general and poorly correspond to the illustrations, the photos are at times washed out, the index is shabby, and there is no reference to safety. A section featuring climbing plants and vines rounds out this edition, which, while not the best trellis and arbor book, provides a fine gallery of some compelling designs. Recommended for larger public libraries.
