gardens for people with a lot of money

Jun 15, 2012

nice ideas but wow for so many of them you would really need a lot of money time and be really professional. I got a few small ideas from this but would only use this book if I was to hire someone and wanted to show them what I wanted them to do. I was looking for things for the part time home gardener so not really for me...
