This book is intended to help home-owners in Marin County, California with their landscape design process. It includes hundreds of local photos organized by topics, such as "Paving Surfaces, Mailboxes" and "Walls," as well as detailed portraits of local landscapes created by author and landscape designer Dane Rose.
"I haven't found one book with a list of deer-resistant, drought-tolerant plants with year-round interest that are available in Marin. Marin Landscape Design has that list and I'm looking forward to saving water by using this list. Thanks, Dane, for producing a useful local book. Couldn't be more thorough!"
"With six hundred Marin landscape images grouped by category, it's ideal for getting a feeling for what you can do in Marin with your hedge, garage door, mailbox and many other landscape arena. It will save you time going to local landscape suppliers when picking out a bark, pebble or boulder category."
"Dane Rose's book Marin Landscape Design is brilliant. In my experience teaching and coaching gardeners I have found photos and brief clear descriptions to be the most value. This book combines these elements of learning in a wonderful format so home owners, gardeners, designers and contractors can significantly improve their work. The photos alone are worth purchasing this book. There are so many beautiful gardens and the ideas for creative growing and living are superb. This book will have a prominent place on my extensive shelves of gardening books."
