Americans annually spend millions of dollars to improve their homes. The cost of all home improvements, including landscaping, has dramatically increased in recent years due to higher labor and material costs. Doesn't it make sense to plan ahead? A mistake choosing paint color will usually cost less than a few hundred dollars to correct--but the cost of correcting a landscaping error may cost thousands of dollars before you reach a solution. Successful landscape design may not be rocket science, but it does require a good understanding of basic principles and time-tested techniques. The Landscape Design Answer Book collects the accumulated wisdom of one of America's premier landscape designers--Jane Bath. Writing specifically for new homeowners and those planning renovations, Bath pulls from her twenty-five-plus years of experience helping thousands of clients. Even though Bath faces a wide range of landscape design situations in her work, the solutions to these important landscape problems remain constant. That's why The Landscape Design Answer Book is unique. Bath reduces the subject of landscape design to about three hundred specific design problems (or goals) a homeowner may face--and provides solutions that can be universally applied. The result is a book that you'll find both pleasing and functional, whether you tackle a landscape design project yourself or hire a professional. Features include: -- More than 300 real-world solutions to landscape design situations -- Photographs of completed projects, both large and small -- Helpful photo call-outs that reveal specific design solutions and goals -- Simple summaries of a landscape solution or goal, followed by real-world examples Do you really want to undertake any landscape design project without advance planning? Probably not. You can't afford not to invest in a copy of The Landscape Design Answer Book; it will be your wisest--and least expensive--decision. (jasbro)
