This book was an ideal guide to helping landscape in the desert. It not only provided a detailed list of plants, but also contained a variety of gardening tips and information concerning watering systems, plant illnesses, and in addition do-it-yourself tools. I would strongly recommend it to anyone looking for an extensive reference when landscaping.
