Homescaping: Designing Your Landscape to Match Your Home
Transform your landscape into an extension of your home with this innovative new approach to garden design and outdoor decorating-showing how to create the perfect setting for any home.
Well-designed outdoor space enhances the appeal and functionality of any home by making the house look complete and seamlessly integrated into its setting. Would a woodland garden work with a stone farmhouse? Would a flagstone walkway suit a brick Colonial? This one-of-a-kind book shows how to transform outdoor space into an extension of the home by matching landscape design to house style. In Homescaping, noted garden writer Anne Halpin:
o Explores different garden styles and offers guidelines on which sorts of houses each garden style suits best
o Shows the way to mix and match the colors of paint and building materials with flower and plant colors
o Looks at options for paths, patios, decks, walls, fences, and hedges; outdoor structures like arbors, pergolas, gazebos, and sheds; and outdoor furniture, lighting, water features, ornaments, and plant containers
Providing a fresh new perspective on home improvement, Homescaping is perfect for homeowners wanting to beautifully complement their home.

Homescaping : Designing Your Landscape to Match Your HomeUser Review - Book Verdict
Despite the fancy title, this book represents not so much a new approach to garden design as an instance of old wine in a new bottle. Halpin, a seasoned garden writer with a dozen books (The Year-Round Flower Gardener ) and more articles to her credit, covers the basics of styles, colors, hardscaping and related structural elements, and garden accessories. These chapters are complemented by plant finder lists and color palette tables that further guide homeowners in their selections. Overall, the focus is on how to think about design, with particular emphasis on coordinating existing architectural features of the property with garden elements. Although certainly not groundbreaking, this is still an informative and attractive resource, with beautiful photographs and strong details. Collections well served by titles like Judith Adam's Landscape Planning: Practical Techniques for the Home Gardener will likely have readers who will enjoy it.--Jennifer Burek Pierce, Indiana Univ.
