    1. The most inexpensive, clear, how-to advice for creating a fantastic yard. Amanda cover all types of people wanting a beautiful garden from those who want to do it all themselves to those who want to convey clearly to the people that they will hire (advice on that too) what they do and do not want. Highly recommended.


    2. This guide to basic gardening has two things that set it aside from most gardening books: it’s put together like a webpage, full of graphics and references to other pages, and it’s funny. Author Thomsen has a blog of the same name as the book on the Fine Gardening website, so I was happy to find she had a book out. This is a book for the beginning gardener, especially for one with a new yard to deal with. Thomsen walks you through the process: the idea stage, mapping the existing space, deci [...]


    3. For a beginning yard design book, this pretty much tops it. I quite enjoyed reading it even though there wasn't a lot of new information. Great color, funny writing like a comic book was pollinated by a snarky garden-themed choose-your-own-adventure.



    4. What a horrible book. Cartoon drawings and flippant comments on how to construct a yard that are basically useless. Rain barrel? Mosquitoes. I can't even remember why I ordered this.


    5. A cute book with some sass and sparkle, Kiss My Aster would be perfect for a housewarming gift, paired with some gloves and a garden spade. It's fun to read, and practical on topics such as planting trees and figuring out how much work a project will likely take. Dedicated gardeners will find themselves wanting something more region-specific and more detailed on certain plants, but this is a nice start. After a while, the font started to make me a little nuts, but I read the book straight throug [...]


    6. An interesting take on gardening books, which does not (thankfully) assume that there is a "right" or typical or best way you "must" do anything in your garden. The advice it gives is good and starts before many other garden books even begin with actually how to think about your garden and what it means to plan for it. It also discusses how to understand and plan for what the consequences of your choices will be. This is something many books leave out. If you are a novice gardener or have just s [...]


    7. A fun and informative book about taking care of your yard and gardening. Don't let the cutesy cover fool you, the author is a Master Garden and landscape designer. In other words, she knows what she is talking about. I disagree with her on a few things, like what to do with shade garden and her view about spirea bushes, but for the most part she and I are in totally agreement. I loved her format and sense of humor, although I didn't skip around like a true Choose-Your-Own Adventure book should b [...]


    8. Great book for the beginning gardener, or just someone looking to put a little landscaping around their house. As someone working in a retail garden center, I really appreciated the nods to the retail employees, and the little things that make our lives easier when we're helping people. I also really enjoyed the illustrations. Nice, humorous take on starting out gardening, and some places where hiring a professional is the right course of action.


    9. I do enjoy a garden book from a smartass perspective. Where else can I find such great information such as: how many gnomes is too many? what plants are soooo over done? and how to spot a phony garden planner (hint, the white pants). This did also have a great deal off very relevant tips and hints on how to plan, build, and enjoy your yard. It was all just wrapped up in a snarky, colorful packagewhich I loved.


    10. Good absolute beginner book to considering lawn and landscape care. The illustrations though are kind of useless. This book is a good way to begin considering different questions with what to do with your lawn if you're new to lawn care. It will not give you a lot of info though. It's more suggestions and places to expand your knowledge. I got a lot out of this book and thought it was a good place to start. Check it out of the library, not one to own.


    11. I liked the choose-your-adventure style the author took with presenting information on gardening and landscaping. Depending on where you are in your design process, you can jump to a particular section to meet those needs and possibly take the recommendation of where to go next. It was a fun read and I enjoyed the author's illustrations.


    12. Loving the nonfiction graphic novels lately. Who knew landscaping could make such a hilarous topic? Comes complete with a bingo game, a 'choose your own adventure' style layout, and serious tee-hees on every page (so far).


    13. This was a great beginning guide for my husband and I as we started to make plans for our yard. There was a lot of information in here that I wouldn't have thought of, wouldn't have remembered to do, or wouldn't have thought were that important.


    14. While this graphic guide does not have in depth info on any particular aspect of the yard and garden process, it is a great and goofy overview of many things (with some plant recommendations to boot) that I am glad I checked out.


    15. Loved how this book is put together. And only found one thing I questioned. She talks about hyacinth beans being edible. I was always taught that you should never eat them. Otherwise, I really enjoyed the book.


    16. I finally gave up on this book. I couldn't focus on it. It was justo much cartooning and too much going on. Not my style. But there was good info there if you're able to focus on it. Just not a fan of these cartoon style layout nonfic books.




    17. The perfect introduction to gardening for your hipster friend. The information here is pretty basic, but presented with wit, charm, and a choose-your-own adventure format. Loads of fun.




    18. I would say this is the best gardening book I've ever read, but since it's the first I've ever read (and not skimmed) I can't say that. But isn't that endorsement enough?



    19. Great intro to gardening. This book is a fun and spunky quick read that covers all the basics with out putting you to sleep.
