A unique and well-written book on design and landscaping!
Most of the existing books on landscaping can be put into one of the three categories:
a. Coffee table books with pretty photos. b. Encyclopedia of plants. c. Horticulture books.
Only a few of the books on landscaping actually discuss design.
"Designing with Succulents" is so unique that it fits in all three categories and it is also a well-written design book. It has striking color photos, useful horticulture information, and it is an encyclopedia for succulents.
This book also has detailed information on planning and design for gardens. Debra started with discussions on sun consideration, basic of garden design, front yard ideas, street side gardens, pathway plantings, slope and terraces and some useful and practical information on evaluating the soils, water and irrigation, and preparing and repairing.
If you mention succulents, most people will think of them as sculptural plants with green-tone or gray-tone colors
