Landscapes, just like houses, sometimes need makeovers but homeowners are often stymied about how and where to begin. They need to know how to evaluate what they have, decide what they want, and put together a plan of action. This book guides them through the process, offering strategies and advice: How to start, what questions to ask, setting goals, priorities, and budget, evaluating the existing landscape, balancing time vs. money, and discussing whether to hire a professional in order to actualize one’s vision. In addition, there are success stories that demonstrate what can be accomplished as well as 275 photographs to inspire homeowners as well as experienced designers.
