In this book I present professional tips on the planning, design, and installation of your landscaping. I cover many subjects including concept, planting, irrigation, and hardscape. Toward the end of the book I present several plants to consider which do well in southern California, many of them natives to the State. However, the tips on planning, such as using locally sourced plants, and hydrozoning, can be applied to virtually any setting.
