Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
..."Any homeowner who wishes to improve the livability, value, and attractiveness of their landscape will gain valuable insight from this new title..."

--Architectural West

Library Journal
Most garden and backyard landscapes would seem naked without delineations between one space and another. This book offers several useful ideas for homeowners who want to make the most of their property. Readers are shown how to create their own landscape design, taking into account their own lifestyle to enhance and personalize their property. Most of the projects require fairly heavy work, such as digging or hauling and placing stone, bricks, gravel, or sand. Hearty do-it-yourselfers should have little trouble following the clear instructions, which are supplemented by vivid color photos and illustrations. A wide variety of materials and techniques is covered for each area: walks include gravel, wood, brick, concrete, or tile; walls include dry-laid stone, mortared stone, block, and brick; and patios include both soft-set and mortar bed designs. Additional sections illustrate how to build steps or retaining walls. This title packs a wealth of information into an easily understood package. Recommended for most public libraries.
