100 GARDEN PLANS by Jack Kramer


Email this review


Aim for a unified outdoor atmosphere,"" decide on purpose (formal or informal, ornamental or working), and select a plan. The 100 illustrated here require largish plots of land (or balconies, for city folk) but the suggestions are clear and attractive, the drawings exact. Besides the predictable summer annuals and rock garden ideas, there are plans for a crop of special interest groups--mobile homes, bird lovers (feeders and anti-cat fencing), cacti and succulents, all ferns or dahlias or irises, even one for the elderly featuring raised planters and a wide aisle. Kramer cares about rhythm and balance, and indicates time and equipment demands on the gardener.
