A Portfolio of Designs

Explore 48 home landscape designs by 18 notable landscape designers. Large color illustrations show what the designs will look like, and site plans delineate the layout and planting scheme. Each design is accompanied by text that describes the plants and projects appearing in them. These designs can make your property more attractive, more useful, and—most important—more enjoyable for you, your family, and your friends.

Plant Profiles

This section of the book includes a description of each of the plants featured in all of the designs. These profiles outline the plants’ basic preferences for environmental conditions—such as soil, moisture, and sun or shade—and provide advice about planting and ongoing care. What’s more, the trees, shrubs, perennials, grasses, bulbs, and vines that are included have all proven themselves as dependable performers in the Northwest region.

Guide to Installation

Follow detailed instructions and illustrations covering all the techniques you’ll need to install any design from start to finish. To keep things simple, the jobs are organized in the order in which you’d most likely tackle them. Color photographs and illustrations will help you learn how to plan the job, clear the site; prepare the planting beds; and install as well as maintain the plantings.
