    Very well done

    Reader-friendly illustrations and writing, as well as nicely indexed information, fill the pages of the ULTIMATE GUIDE TO FENCES, ARBORS, AND TRELLISES. Writer Steve Willson even has readers prepped for the range of possible challenges and pitfalls. He puts this advice, and these warnings, in colored boxes labeled caution [such as about affecting neighborhood runoff] and smart tips [such as about keeping western red cedar's color]. He also rates projects by easy/challenging/difficult skill levels. Everything comes together in the last chapter - my favorite - on best-suited climbing/rambler roses and vines for arbors, fences, gates, and trellises. The book ends with a much-appreciated glossary, index, and resource guide.
