    Famous Landscape Architect Thomas Church once wrote: ' Landscaping is logical, down-to-earth and aimed at making your plot of ground produce what you want and need from it.' The original bestseller, 'Sunset Western Garden Book' is one of the best encyclopedia and is the 'Bible' of Western Gardening. I am very happy to read its companion, 'Sunset Western Landscaping Book.' This new addition to the Sunset family is a great attempt in covering the design aspect of landscaping. It covers topography, climate, lifestyle, plants, and environment. It starts with the purpose, design and planning of gardens, microclimates, seasons, soils, understanding of site, Western garden styles, the process from plan to reality, and gardens in different regions of the West. It continues to explore the use of various garden structures (arbors, decks, fences, fireplaces, gazebos, kitchens, paths, patios, steps, walls, etc) and garden plants (trees, shrubs, vines, perennials, annuals, bulbs, herbs, fruits and vegetables, ornamental grasses, wild flowers, and succulents, etc) in landscaping. It also discusses finishing touches (lighting, containers, birdhouses, garden art, water features, etc), regional problems and solutions, materials and techniques, and landscape plans. I like the color landscape plans in 'Sunset Western Landscaping Book.' I can tell Fiona Gilsenan and Kathleen Norris Brenzel and their team put in a lot of effort in creating and selecting the plans. They also have good, professionally trained eyes. The colors of the plans are harmonious and pleasant. They can be used as good samples for selecting colors for landscape presentation plans. 'Sunset Western Landscaping Book' has 416 pages and many color interior photographs. It is a fine companion to 'Sunset Western Garden Book' and a must-have for personal, professional, academic, and community library Gardening & Landscaping reference collections. Gang Chen, author of 'Planting Design Illustrated'
