The New Backyard Idea Book is a great book to add to your permanent library. Whether you need a small container garden for apartment living, a modest plan for a city lot or a coordinated design for several garden “rooms,” this book will lovingly illustrate a host of different design options. Well written with magnificent photographs showcasing the flavor of each garden element. Inspired by some of the water features, pergola ideas and seating options, I think a visit to my local greenhouse and garden store is definitely in the offing this weekend! Excellent for coffee table and schools, too.
