There are some beautiful pictures and great ideas for no-mow yards in here, though I think it would have been helpful to have a guide divided by hardiness zones (groundcover and plants that work well in Florida may not work so well in Northern Michigan). Would also have been nice to see some schematics for yards drawn up like blueprints. I did like having different chapters for things like rain gardens and patios.
