The new edition of Sunset Western Landscaping is out now!
Jan. 23 update: Got my copy from amazon.com a few days ago. I give it 5 /5 stars. Sunset certainly didn’t skimp on glossy color photos, plant palettes are inspiring and reflect regional differences, and suggestions are given for special growing conditions. These are big-budget gardens, but the designers didn’t succumb to the tendency to unnecessarily overdo the hardscaping. Where hardscape is the dominant feature, it makes sense, like in the southwest. Plant lovers will find plenty of inspiration.
