Do you own a home in Marin County? This is the ONLY book dedicated to helping you save money, create what you want and learn what you need to succeed creating your landscape. It is written by a veteran designer and installer with twenty years in the industry.
"Dane Rose's book on landscaping in Marin is quite unlike any other book on the subject. It is full of the kind of practical advice that most other books fail to mention. I would recommend this to anyone with any sort of building project, not just a garden in Marin! This book is an essential and the very first book you should read on the subject. He may even persuade you not to bother with a landscaping project at all which could save you a whole lot of trouble and expense. There are coupons in the book for discounts with some local suppliers and I already made savings of many more times the price of the book."
"I found this book very useful in planning my landscaping for my home in the Oakland hills. As a home builder I know about building but landscaping is something I know next to nothing about, and this book was perfect in exposing me to all of the various facets I need to consider to get started. The resources were very helpful, although more so for those in Marin, but the rest of the book applied to my Oakland home just as well. I really appreciated the complete presentation of all aspects of a landscaping project as opposed to listing plants to consider. I also feel I have a better understanding of how I can save money and where I may need to get some outside help. Outstanding!"
"Dane Rose of Mystical Landscapes in San Rafael is very talented as a designer as well as landscape contractor who is intuitive in understanding and meeting the desires of a client which comes across very clear in this book in ways to assist in avoiding expensive mistakes in planning either landscape remodel/update or new construction installations. A great book to help a home owner/gardner understand landscaping hurdles to work around and is a great resource book for advice and sources in Marin County. No need to be fearful of tackling landscaping challenges when the book is available as well as he is locally available and easy to work with. Have also experienced his continuing education clases on avoiding landscaping mistakes which follow this book as well."
"Dane is fantastic. I highly recommend this book to anyone thinking about landscaping their yards. The book lays out the basic concepts for creating a landscape design and touches on materials, cost, products, plants, irrigation and places to go for extra help. This book is truly very helpful."
