Walk this way . . .

The Garden Traveler's Library:
The Welcoming Garden; Designing Your Own Front Garden
by Gordon Hayward
walk this way, walk this way, walk this way. . .
No, Aerosmith wasn’t singing about the pathways and front gardens of American homes. But it could well be garden designer Gordon Hayward’s personal mantra. He wants gardeners everywhere to rethink our front and entry gardens and make them more imaginative and inviting. After all, it’s what visitors see first.

As this book demonstrates, there is more to front yard landscaping than foundation plantings. Hayward provides a step-by-step approach to transform your own front garden to reflect your personal style and your landscape. He gives design principles that everyone can follow, including plenty of gorgeous photographs of actual gardens.
