Just like every person has a story, when I look at a space, I look at the story it’s trying to tell me, and I design the garden accordingly.

Carloftis does a good job of explaining the light requirements of 60 fairly low-maintenance plants, which he helpfully breaks down into categories (low, medium, high) based on those requirements. He includes the ubiquitous golden pothos among his recommendations, but there were also many interesting and gorgeous plants I'd never heard of. I could easily see where I could outfit my whole house in greenery without going outside of his recommendations-and since I'm somewhat new to gardening, I may do just that. The book is missing an index and a list of resources, so I docked a star.

I was led to believe that this copy of the book was in fine condition. The book jacket is in poor condition with multiple creases, and the cover of the book has obviously had a great deal of wear and tear.

I have a friend in my town who built a very fabulous modern home. Mr. Carloftis did his landscaping and I was quite impressed coming from a family of landscapers. His approach is very unique and inspiring. The book is lovely and can set your imagination free.
Very nice.

Perfectly done.

I was given this book by the author and his brother as a Christmas gift and I really have not been able to put the book down. You can simply open to any page of this book and find interesting garden ideas. I have already implemented many from his book and my own ideas. The book also showcases his 1850's farm house in Pennsylvania. What a beautiful place to enjoy in his book. Anyone who even has a remote interest in plants and gardens will truly love this book. Jon Carloftis provides you with many ideas for a variety of gardens including rooftop gardens. Enjoy!
