Synopses & Reviews
"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." Publishers Weekly
"[T]houghtful and thought-provoking design advice....Descriptive color photographs illustrate Ziegler's comprehensive inquiry, followed by a lengthy section devoted to plant listings that include cultural details along with inspired ideas for stunning beds and borders." Alice Joyce, Booklist
