**I did not read the entire book, only parts of chapters** What I did read, I found to be helpful and informative. I would recommend this as a starting place for anyone looking for a landscaping resource, especially DIYers.

Pretty good, most of the projects were beyond what I can or want to do, but I enjoyed most of the information.

The most complete landscaping book I've found to date! Ponds, pools, decks, arbors, drainage, selecting plants, dealing with slopes, creating a design- yes, this book covers that!
