The Garden Writers Association of America awarded Garden Stone a 2003 Garden Globe Award of Achievement for Writing. The Washington Post wrote: "Garden Stone is one of the best idea books on using stones in the landscape that I have seen." And Country Living Gardener said: "While the book is visually stunning...diagrams and step-by-step instructions show how gardeners can make their dreams come true." Garden Stone capitalizes on a hot trend in landscaping: adding stone to bring texture, colour, serenity, and strength to the garden. Author Barbara Pleasant offers gardeners more than 40 enchanting designs -from something as simple as a flagstone path to an elaborate Zen-inspired meditation garden. But this is not just a picture book. Each project is packed with practical, down-to-earth installation advice, including clear line-drawings and instructional diagrams. Furthermore, an up-to-date resource list helps do-it-yourselfers find the tools and materials they need. Both practical and inspirational, Garden Stone shows any gardener how stone can add enduring beauty to any landscape.
