Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Former editor of Martha Stewart Living, Russell (Outdoor Entertaining Idea Book) nicely revises Lee Anne White's 2004 Backyard Idea Book. All of the photos and sections are updated, illustrating backyards of beautiful possibilities and the newest outdoor living trends, like kitchens and fire pits. With some small projects and interesting asides, this gorgeous book serves chiefly as a means of inspiration rather than construction guidance.

New Backyard Idea Book 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

The New Backyard Idea Book is a great book to add to your permanent library. Whether you need a small container garden for apartment living, a modest plan for a city lot or a coordinated design for several garden "rooms," this book will lovingly illustrate a host of different design options. Well written with magnificent photographs showcasing the flavor of each garden element. Inspired by some of the water features, pergola ideas and seating options, I think a visit to my local greenhouse and garden store is definitely in the offing this weekend! Excellent for coffee table and schools, too.
