Landscaping for Dummies
John Wiley & Sons, Jan 13, 1999 - Architecture - 384 pages
A beautiful landscape reflects well on your house, making it a welcome part of a neighborhood or native terrain. And it dramatically increases your home’s value. Landscaping also makes your house and yard more useful and better able to complement your family’s lifestyle. Trees shade your home to reduce energy use. Thorny shrubs deter prowlers. Lawns reduce dust from bare ground and give children the perfect play area. Patios and decks are great for entertaining. And a vegetable garden can yield fresh, delicious salads to eat on that patio or deck.
Landscaping for Dummies has everything you need to turn the little patch of earth you call your own into a personal paradise. Whether you’ve waited for the day to have property to landscape, you’d never given it a second thought until you had to, or you want to improve on an existing landscape, this book offers a clearly written wealth of knowledge on:
From the basic principles of landscape design, to all the ins and outs of hillsides, balcony gardens, and water gardens, this book will show you how to:
Full of helpful problem-solvers for all kinds of landscapes, Landscaping for Dummies also features sample plans, “theme” landscape ideas, and a brilliant color photo section to inspire the imagination. Accessible and informative to both beginner and expert landscapers, this is the complete guide to creating the yard you’ve always wanted.

wonderful how to landscapingUser Review - Overstock.com
I bought this book a few years ago and it has been indispensable in my yard. I have a hilly, sloping terrible yard with no skills to try to change it. I bought this book and started with a small project of installing 3 concrete blocks as steps to get off my porch onto the lawn. Instructions were very clear, I followed them carefully and I have had very sturdy steps for several years now. Instructions for building low walls with landscaping blocks and ways to terrace off sections, large or small, on a slope or on flat ground have been extremely helpful. I have spent several summers working on one thing at a time and have slowly turned a huge headache of a back yard into a nice pleasurable place to spend some time and each new installation of a wall or terrace or steps makes the maintenance in my yard that much easier. I credit this book with its clear instructions in simple language and great pictures for helping me to enjoy my summers outside.
Great informationUser Review - Overstock.com
Great book that has information for countless areas in the garden. Only wish certain topics gave more information and reference on but still very useful.
