The title says it all. Gardens are not just pretty spaces to look at but places to dwell within and become renewed. The author will help you define what it is you are looking for in a garden and how to create that special unique space. Beautiful photography.

This book was one of the things that convinced me that I wanted to do something to help people, and to make a living while doing so. The images are wonderful and Julie has a great way of enchanting any outdoor or garden-minded person.
