The subtitle, Create and Decorate Outdoor Garden Spaces, is a more apt description of this book's content. As it is, you have to stretch your spatial definitions, since this slick, beautifully photographed book covers much more than spaces. Included are patios, trellis walls, herb gardens, lists of plants for container water gardens, plants for moonlight gardens, directions for a cobblestone fountain, plants for paved areas, advice on good lawns, gates, paths and furnishings in the usual Time-Life style. The appealing photographs make this a choice book to dream over, and the typography and layout make it an easy book to read and learn from.
