KIRKUS REVIEW

Not really a garden book, but might readily be sold in that department. A book for the home builder, the architect, etc. How to select a site for a house, with the landscaping in mind. Where to place a house on a lot. How to lay out the service end, garage, drying yard, etc. Types of roadbed for the driveway. Planting. Terraces. Walls. Fences. Steps. Garden design and plans. Type of gardens. Rock gardens. Not a book about flowers and trees and shrubs, about what to grow and where -- but a book on planning the groundwork on which ultimately to build and plant.
