How to use stone—in walls, walkways, terraces, and more—to create beautiful, lasting gardens.
Stone furnishes the framework, the structure, and the sense of permanence that transforms gardens. Whether in the form of retaining walls or benches, terraces or walkways, as bold standing stones or as boulders at the edge of a small stream or pond, stone lends a garden focus, providing the perfect foil to plants.

Book News
A garden designer describes the creative and practical aspects of garden rock work, from choosing stone that is sympathetic to a property and creating inspired scenes with it to moving heavy stone without hurting oneself. Superb color photographs and detailed pen-and-ink drawings illustrate modest, fanciful, and grand uses for various materials. Also covers practicalities such as choosing a stone mason and calculating amounts of stone. Especially useful is a visual index of 53 widely-available varieties of stone. Annotation c.
