This book is a master class of design fundamentals, with an emphasis on topics often neglected in other design books, such as site evaluation, color theory, and planting for maintenance. It is also a gallery of detailed design plans that show how ideas are put onto paper and then translated into three dimensions. The book also offers exhaustive research on the lifetime care needs of plants featured in the book. Extensive appendices detail characteristics and maintenance requirements of hundreds of trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, and bulbs. The result is a nearly foolproof guide to every aspect of designing superior gardens with superior plants.” Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 5 lbs 6 oz. Category: Gardens; ISBN: 0881925594.
