Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0789441608, Paperback)

Full of solid, practical advice and plenty of how-to pictures, Lawns and Groundcovers is an ideal title for those looking to maximize their success growing this astonishing variety of plants. Focusing on appropriate uses for different varieties, and exploring all kinds of options for dealing with a number of climates and growing conditions, you'll find direction for growing healthy plants and creating your own unique haven.

Designed to be a complete do-it-yourself guide, don't let the small format of this book fool you--it's absolutely jam-packed with ideas for all styles of gardens, and as always, publisher Dorling Kindersley manages to take fairly complicated projects and reduce them to a manageable size that even the gardening novice can handle. Practical considerations are dealt with firmly--no skipping such detail work as proper seed sowing or routine mulchings. The listings by color, size, use, and scent are very specific, and new gardeners will find all kinds of useful tips.

Inspirational ideas are plentiful--the garden photographs are lush and detailed and provide all kind of unusual notions for creating a truly unique gardening space. Whether you're looking to design a bed of cushy moss for a low-maintenance play area or naturalizing bulbs for a delightful casual look, you'll find options for all your projects involving these inexpensive and delightfully textured plants. --Jill Lightner
