"This thoughtful volume takes much of the guesswork out of garden design....[Ziegler's] show-and-tell approach is particularly useful....It's a rare gardening book that offers substance enough for the expert without intimidating the beginner: Ziegler accomplishes that feat with aplomb, and her book will be as rewarding to those who read it closely as it is to the browser."
