Unfortunately I have not found this book to be as enlightening as it purported to be and I wanted to send it back. It is well written but I feel that the audience it is directed towards would probably fall into the rich one percenter category who would rather use this book as a decorative piece on their coffee table and hire the guy who wrote it. Impractical, bland and benign. If you are looking for a practical guide to landscape gardening and design, look elsewhere. Or YouTube.
