This book is great at explaining ways to achieve a Mediterranean landscape whether you have a big yard or small. It gives great tips on hardscaping as well as giving you tips for low maintenance gardening to plants that are a little more effort. I'm a novice gardener and felt this book was a great starting point for helping me design my large yard. Highly recommend!!
