A beautiful landscape reflects well on your house, making it
a welcome part of a neighborhood or native terrain. And
it dramatically increases your home?s value.
Landscaping also makes your house and yard more useful and better
able to complement your family?s lifestyle. Trees shade your
home to reduce energy use. Thorny shrubs deter prowlers. Lawns
reduce dust from bare ground and give children the perfect play
area. Patios and decks are great for entertaining. And a vegetable
garden can yield fresh, delicious salads to eat on that patio or
deck.
Landscaping for Dummies has everything you need to turn
the little patch of earth you call your own into a personal
paradise. Whether you?ve waited for the day to have property
to landscape, you?d never given it a second thought until you
had to, or you want to improve on an existing landscape, this book
offers a clearly written wealth of knowledge on:





Designs

Fences, walls, gates, and paths

Decks, patios, and outdoor rooms

Trees

Shrubs and vines

Ground cover



From the basic principles of landscape design, to all the ins
and outs of hillsides, balcony gardens, and water gardens, this
book will show you how to:

Increase your home?s resale value

Conserve energy

Full of helpful problem-solvers for all kinds of landscapes,
Landscaping for Dummies also features sample plans,

section to inspire the imagination. Accessible and informative to
both beginner and expert landscapers, this is the complete guide to
