This book had good photos for a quick flip. Some ideas were a lot more focused on aesthetics than practicality though (e.g. dip painting the handles of your garden shovels so that they are glossy and match your perfect black garden potting bench). I liked that there were a variety of gardens from California and the rest of the country. All of the gardens were way fancier and bigger than a typical San Diego city home, though.

A coffee table book for the nice photos, but as a design book ideas is not so great. There's a lot of cements, and run of the mill stuff. Nice locations from different countries.

I was disappointed with this book. As a design book it failed. Some of the pictures are nice to look at but I will probably never check this book out again. 'Fine Gardening Beds & Borders' is much better at giving you ideas on how to design your garden.
