Review by Library Journal (2012-01-01)

The first step in creating a successful garden is choosing the right plants. Fortunately, for anyone trying to grow things in an area that experiences drought conditions at least once a year (or anyone who just wants a more sustainable type of landscape that places less water demands on the local environment), there is a new guide in town. This husband-and-wife team of landscape designers (coauthors, Plant-Driven Design) offer gardeners a bounty of botanical possibilities, including trees, shrubs, ground covers, annuals, and perennials, that will survive and thrive in low-water gardens. Each concise plant entry includes gorgeous color photos of the plant, growth details, the zones in which the plant grows best, special attributes, and design ideas.

Verdict: While this doesn't replace standard gardening references or regional resources, which offer more specifics on the actual process of designing and planting a garden, it is a terrific complement to the basic resources and would be a valuable addition to any library collection. New and veteran gardeners in USDA zones 3-10 will find this colorful guide an excellent resource when it comes to selecting suitable plants for a sustainable landscape.
