I am a library person so I've checked out a lot of garden design and gardening books and didn't plan on buying one when I when in to Barnes & Noble. I was just browsing. Many books I've seen in libraries seem like they have too basic information, or the garden scales are overwhelming or the plans are ugly. This book is perfect. The aesthetic taste of the designs are naturalistic without looking messy, with a wide array of specimens used. It reads nicely and the garden photographs are great. Between the photos, sketches, and plant lists, you can actually get a great sense of what is being done in these gardens. There are great examples for all the different conditions a garden may be. It's very inspiring. I am definitely planning on stealing some planting designs to get good height, color and texture differences. And I went in looking for a wildflower field guide (which I also bought).

Very helpful.Not dry and dusty, but a fun read. Good solid information presented in a witty style. Gives gardeners permission to try new things and not feel guilty about making mistakes, a great reference for design.
