Review:

What a lavish, delightful fantasy book this is for any gardener! Even better, it shows how to make the fantasies real. Beautifully illustrated with over 300 full-color photographs and watercolor sketches, it will take your drab garden and help you turn it into a stunning, eye-catching delight. It includes ideas to disguise unsightly flaws or outbuildings; ways to enhance views and emphasize colors, textures, and scents; advice on plant selection; and much more. Some of the chapters are "Decorative Boundaries," "Through the Window," "Somewhere to Sit," "Illusions and Disguises," "Creativity with Containers," and "Water in the Garden." Each chapter contains boxed features that offer special, practical tips: "How to Do It," "Money Savers," "Making It Easier," and "Toolboxes."

Any outdoor space or yard, large or small, urban or rural, can be enhanced and improved by the creative ideas, plans, suggestions, and designs offered in this big book filled with tantalizing illustrations and practical advice. For personal pleasure or as an inspirational gift for a gardening friend, this is a useful, creative look at how to go about turning a drab yard into a glorious garden, a feast for the senses. --Mark A. Hetts
