Flipping channels one day on the tv I saw a show that I liked. It was hosted by P. Allen Smith.

Lo and behold, they did! I spent most of the month enjoying this book in little bits.The 12 features of design were inspirational. I plan on buying this book so that I can continously review it.

Lovely book. Smith's 12 principles for garden design provide a starting point for planning or improving upon your garden. Emphasizing structure and the purpose behind each garden 'room', he guides readers through the process of creating or re-shaping the space they have to suit their needs, beautifully.Lush photos, specific recommendations, ideas for adding easy structures and surfaces, and a friendly tone throughout.
