I enjoyed the beautiful pictures and inspiration for water saving gardens and landscaping techniques. Author Pam Penick definitely has a creative eye for beautiful landscape design and I appreciated the wide variety of ideas based on the readers particular water saving goals. It was especially inspirational to see the transformation of landscapes in the “lose the lawn” section. I also enjoyed part four: oasis or mirage? and the creativeness of creating the ILLUSION of water in the garden with landscaping materials and plants. I would recommend this book for anyone who is looking to reduce water usage in their landscaping. I received this book in exchange for an honest review through “blogging for books”.
