It is a nice book which shows how desert plants can be used in landscaping with pictures. However it provides no information on the growth habits, watering preferences or general care of the plants shown. You will still need to buy a gardening book for that information.

Typical Sunset publication -- a gorgeous book, teeming with inspirational photos. The copy I rec'd was very slightly shelf-worn, but this makes no difference to me at all. The only drawback is that this makes my own desert "garden" look pretty shabby by comparison! Gotta get to work.

I didn't find this very helpful. The best book i have come across for our hot weather area (zone 9), antelope valley, southern california, is the one put out by home depot, 'landscaping 1-2-3'. and it's available on amazon, but check for you applicable zone as it seems one book no longer covers them all.

Good pictures that illustrate desert landscaping ideas. Not a “plant book”- don’t expect species to be listed with any detail. Good for general planting ideas and landscape planting.

Lots of horticultural advice, but also lots of ideas for layout, design and materials.
We just moved to Arizona and it's very different! I bought two books, this one and a more expensive hard back designer book - I'd say this book is just as good, if not better. Lots of pictures, lots of advice, and lots of ideas that you can easily do yourself.
Great info. Arrived in perfect condition. One of my 2 AZ gardening bibles.
