  • A little too basic

    By Yoga jim
    I like the various species mentioned for the design area. I think further explanation of soil types and suggested places to would add for the basics. For the minimal price it was helpful
  • Landscaping?

    By Joan Huntley
    This book should be called basic gardening! Not landscaping!,, nothing regarding design or movement. I need help with style and design. And the book had plant basics and suggested I draw my plan on paper? Isn't that what real landscaping is? Telling me to sit outside and do it doesn't get it . There was no landscaping in this book . It is gardening for dummies I wasted my money.
