    The best thing about this book was all the different gardens they showed I got some amazing ideas about ways to play with landscape ways to layer different desert plants and some great advice about using plants to provide wind breaks Since we are in the middle of a typical windy spring in Albuuerue I'm glad that this book reminded me of plants to use to help with that
