Nobody wants to spend time in a tired, underperforming yard. But how to achieve a low-cost, low-maintenance yard that's environmentally savvy as well as beautiful - a place that works for every need? How do the pros do it? Award-winning landscape architect and garden coach Billy Goodnick says, “Whether you're starting with bare ground or you're renovating an existing yard, you gotta have a plan.” With step-by-step, clear examples, he demystifies the planning process: from site analysis to lifestyle considerations to plant selection. It's all about training the eye to see the big picture first, so all the other pieces fall into place, leading to the outdoor environment of one's dreams. Full color photos throughout.
