    1. I was disappointed in the lack of photographs in this book, but found the section on how to artfully add large stones to the landscape so superb that it alone makes up for any other issues. Joseph Cali discusses how to size stone groupings based on how and from where the viewer will see them. He also explains how the slope of a rock will create tension. Anyone wanting to add stones to their garden or lawn should check out this book.

    2. The Japanese garden is the new fad. If you're looking for more then raked stone, this book has wonderful ideas that can help you develop your own Japanese garden or incorporate into your existing garden. I'm working on redesigning my entryway to give the same serenity as the picture shown on the cover. Very calming.

    3. Great suggestions to help with the planning of your courtyard space. Waterfalls, wet and dry, rock gardens, live gardens, and viewing persepective all discussed. The pictures are inspiring.
