Best Landscaping Books

There are so many landscaping books available, how do you choose the one that fits your needs? Before you go to the bookstore or library, you need to consider exactly what you want to get out of your book, for example, are you just looking for landscaping ideas, or are you looking for step by step guides?

If you have a definite idea of how you want your finished garden to look, whether you are considering a Japanese Water Garden with Koi Carp or small footbridges with little pagodas, you are likely to have a larger garden and so a book on landscaping ideas for courtyards will be fairly useless to you. Alternatively, if your outside space is small and you are looking for ideas on how to get the most out of it then looking at books on how to best position a swimming pool or gazebo is just not going to work for you.

There are several well-known garden TV personalities whose ideas have been put into books. If you have no clear idea of what you would like, or perhaps you want to replicate something you have seen one of them do on TV, then look specifically for their books. Diarmuid Gavin and Alan Titchmarsh are perhaps two of the most famous faces in recent years to grace the screens with their amazing landscaping skills. Both have books on landscaping ideas for gardens of different sizes. There is no need to miss out on having a spectacular outside space if you have just a small courtyard to work with, their books will show you how.

You can buy their books along with a number of other gardening and landscaping books from any high street bookshop, online or even just borrow them from your local library. Reading will help.
