This is a great book with lots of small garden projects. Each "project" has a fold out page with instructions and alternate planting ideas. There are sections for containers to make, stone and brick-work projects, edible planting projects, decorative planting.....lots of fun ideas!

I found this book to be a lot of fun with great ideas for the garden. The layout of the book is different, with fold-out pages that are sturdy enough to stand up to the task. Some of the projects are beyond my abilities but that's ok. Even those projects gave me ideas for other ones. The photos are beautiful and very inspiring. This book is a great gift for any gardner.

I think what I liked most about this book was its organization. The project ideas are nicely grouped and there's something for people with a lot of time to put into their garden and those who just want a few nicely arranged pots. This book has a number of different vegetable and herb garden plans, which include suggestions for arranging and organizing your plants. I think I found that just as helpful to me (a very inexperienced gardener) as the projects themselves. While some of the projects can be made with just basic skills, others are designed for someone with a little more experience. My husband and I have already built on of the projects in here, and we are looking forward to trying some more next spring. I find myself going back to this book just to flip through the pictures and marvel at the creative arrangements. It's a lot of fun for not much money.
