Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Yard work, like housework, is never ending, and possibilities for great enhancements abound. This follow-up to the author's John Deere Landscaping and Lawn Care offers a rather wide range of yard projects, from addressing your lawn's bald patches to building a shed. None, however, is particularly well handled. The instruction is minimal, the organization is poor, plant recommendations fail to take into consideration zones or regions, and important techniques are missing. Myriad other available books focusing on landscaping, planting, water features, and other outdoor structures do a better job of offering details; this one tries to encompass too much and suffers for it. An optional purchase.
