Publisher Comments:

Gaining Ground sparks your imagination and helps you enhance your own little piece of paradise

"From minor alterations such as building a lattice enclosure for an electric meter to installing a monumental sculpture, Gilmer covers the bases for landscaping a home."

--Booklist

"Filled with photos, line drawings, and lists of plant recommendations, these two hundred packed pages evidence Gilmer's talent for gracefully jamming a great deal into a small space."

  • Turn a postage-stamp backyard into an oasis of water and color

With page after page of breathtaking color photographs and blueprint drawings of spectacular gardens, Gaining Ground will send your imagination spinning and inspire you to create the garden of your dreams.
