Présentation de l'éditeur

Succulent plants offer dazzling possibilities for garden design and require only minimal maintenance to remain lush and alluring year round. Featuring the work of more than 50 professional garden designers and creative homeowners, this complete design compendium is as practical as it is inspirational. Lavishly illustrated with over 300 photographs, it gives design and cultivation basics for paths, borders, slopes, and containers; hundreds of succulent plant recommendations; and descriptions of 90 easy-care, drought-tolerant companion plants. Beginners and experienced designers, landscapers, and collectors alike will find what they need to visualize, create, and nurture the three-dimensional work of art that is the succulent garden.

Par Gang Chen
Most of the existing books on landscaping can be put into one of the three categories:

a. Coffee table books with pretty photos.
b. Encyclopedia of plants.
c. Horticulture books.

Only a few of the books on landscaping actually discuss design.

"Designing with Succulents" is so unique that it fits in all three categories and it is also a well-written design book. It has striking color photos, useful horticulture information, and it is an encyclopedia for succulents.

This book also has detailed information on planning and design for gardens. Debra started with discussions on sun consideration, basic of garden design, front yard ideas, street side gardens, pathway plantings, slope and terraces and some useful and practical information on evaluating the soils, water and irrigation, and preparing and repairing.

If you mention succulents, most people will think of them as sculptural plants with green-tone or gray-tone colors. Debra provided some fresh ideas and introduced succulents with vivid, colorful leaves and brilliant flowers into garden design. She also explored the issues of landscaping and fire safety, the design of green roof gardens, rock and boulder gardens, desert and cactus gardens, beach gardens, sea-themed succulent gardens, geometric plantings, as well as tapestry and labyrinth gardens with the use of succulents.

"Designing with Succulents" has a special chapter on pots, wreath and container gardens, including style and sizes, design principles and creative ideas for pots, wreath or topiary, and soils, sun and fertilizers, and water and drainage. I found this information to be very useful, especially for gardens with tight spaces and for remodel projects where planting areas are limited.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Well Written with Beautiful Photographs 31 mars 2007
Par Catriona Erler - Publié sur Amazon.com
If you like the idea of growing succulents, but haven't a clue how to use them in combination with other plants in your garden, then this is the book for you. The beautiful photographs are rich with ideas and inspiration, and the indepth captions answer any question you might have about the plants in the pictures and even the location of the gardens. I was particularly drawn to the two top photos on page 234 and one of an Agave franzosinii taken at Mission San Juan Capistrano in California (page 150). Baldwin's writing style is delightful; easy to read, entertaining, and informative. Clearly she is writing from experience so you know what she says will be helpful and accurate. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Love this book 23 mai 2007
Par Michael Brewer - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a great book on succulents. Debra Lee Baldwin has tackled a large body of material. She has explained it all very well in an interesting way. Well organized,well illustrated ,with great photos (most of which were her own). She has put a lot of work into this. It must have taken years of research followed by years of writing to get this all put together. This not just an encyclopedia on succulents, but a very readable treatment of the whole subject of how to use them and work with them in your own garden. She tells you everything you would want to know from propgation to pests. I can't say enough good things about this book . A real gem.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Exceptional work, brilliantly photographed. 9 avril 2007
Par Robert Dean - Publié sur Amazon.com
As a Landscape Architect with almost 30 years of experience designing gardens in Southern California, I have been a longtime fan of the excellent works created by Debra Lee Baldwin. It is no small coincidence that "Designing With Succulents" is well written, concise and wonderfully illustrated with stunning photography. This is a book that everyone from professional designers to home gardeners will want to keep very close to their desks for reference.

Living in an environment with precious water resources and little natural rainfall it will become essential for all of us to take a more aggressive stance utilizing low-water plants in our design work. I congratulate Debra for giving us a design reference filled with great inspiration and helpful technical information.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An extraordinary book 4 mai 2007
Par John Shore - Publié sur Amazon.com
I've only recently gotten into succulents, which I find fascinating since they always look like they're from Mars. I can't imagine there is anywhere in the world a better book on succulents than Ms. Baldwin's. It's superb. It's comprehensive; it's detailed; it's perfectly structured, so that the sheer volume of information isn't in any way intimidating; and the artwork alone--the photographs--are worth twice what the book costs. It seems crazy to say, but I would recommend this book to anyone at all: gardener, computer geek, car salesman, anyone. If you've ever been awed by nature, this book will resonate with you. It's that good. And if you ARE a gardener--then holy cow, what are you waiting for?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Unique Garden Design Book for Succulents (including Cacti) 9 juin 2007
Par Avid Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
My library contains about a dozen books on Cacti and Succulents and about thirty books related to garden design and landscape architecture. However, "Designing With Succulents" by Debra Lee Baldwin combines both subjects; drought tolerant plant materials and how to effectively design using these very popular and easy to grow plants. If you're thinking about trying to cut down on your water usage in the garden, don't hesitate to order this book so that you'll know everything you need to create a unique garden with these stunning stars of the garden world. A must have for any garden lover !!!
