Lovely idea book. It covers design basics, theme gardens, such as attracting pollinators, and how to add color, texture, and interest to your garden. It also goes into adding visual interest and focal points with things like walls, arches, rocks, planters, benches, and fun garden statuary. The photographs are gorgeous and inspiring. A lovely book overall, with an emphasis on creating your dream garden, not on plant care. Tons of ideas included.
