Very inspiring, great format. Most of the useful info is towards the back of the book, but I enjoyed this placement when I finally got there because it would have been overwhelming at the front. It's a little pretentious (it seems to assume the reader is extremely rich) but also very inspiring just the same.

I was reading this book and told my husband I didn't like it. He said "Well yes, because nothing in there is real"

I agree. I guess I just wanted some ideas to do in a normal backyard, practical application type things. Because let's face it - If I had the backyard space and money to do things like in this book, I would *skip* the book and just hire a landscaper.

Gloriously inspirational photographs and great ideas to steal. Unfortunately, xeriscaping is harder than it looks. Perhaps it's just me. But some wonderful successes too. I'd buy it just for the photographs.

Pretty pictures, that's about it. There are better books out there that offer not only pretty, inspirational pictures, but a lot of actual advice on landscaping as well. It's not a bad book, it's just not particularly useful.

Most of the book is full of impractical and too expensive ideas, but there are several great ideas if you know what to look for.
