The Landscape Makeover Book: How to Bring New Life to an Old Yard
Synopses & Reviews
The median age of the American home is 30 years. Consequently, many homeowners do not enjoy a perfect yard: the landscape may be overgrown or in need of a facelift. Professional landscaper Sara Jane von Trapp comes to the rescue with an illustrated guide to revamping an old yard without spending a fortune. She covers both overall design possibilities and areas of concern — entries, walkways, decks, lighting, plantings, and lawns — with specific instructions, and also helps readers determine when professional help is needed.
Book News Annotation:
Inspired by her own yard makeover, this veteran landscape designer takes a realistic approach to plotting garden/patio/deck transformations. Color photos and diagrams emphasize action plans with proper tools and techniques rather than specific plants. Lacks references and resources.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Clear, practical instructions from the author of "Landscape Doctor" help homeowners tackle any project with confidence. 200 color photos. Illustrations.
