Dreaming about gardening and planning?

This book has been such a breath of fresh air for me. I love to dream about what to do in my yard but needed a push and I finally feel a lot more confident after listening to this. I love listening to the design ideas and of course, anything to help me save money is appreciated. I can't wait to quit dreaming and start putting some of these elements into play!

A wonderful guide for anyone passionate about gardening!

I have recently taken up gardening myself and while the fruits of my labor have made the work well worth it, the work itself was MUCH more than I had anticipated. This book offers some awesome tips and advice for not only managing your garden to the fullest, but not beating yourself up about missing some maintenance here and there. Taking things in small pieces one day at a time will certainly help. Looking forward to implementing some of these tips in my garden ASAP!

Spam

this is a spam book that has just as much info as a google search on "landscaping". Couldn't google the author, despite claims of a beautiful garden that is unsearchable. Audible probably needs to remove this.

Excellent primer on the key elements of landscape design, implementation, and maintenance

I am getting ready to embark on a major landscape redesign and found this book to be very helpful in getting me started and pointed in the right direction. It is easy to understand in practical. Want to keep pointers on what to do I could do what you expect overtime

Rambling with very little information.

Rambling with very little information. Very basic information. If you are remotely interested in garden this book is too basic.

Can't wait to get started

This is the most comprehensive resource I've come across in regards to designing a garden. At first, I was just interested in some basic ideas but this book gave me some great options I never even considered! Even though I'm a beginner, I'm now very excited about my garden space. I have so many ideas to work with. My eyes are opened and I'm having a great time with the design process. Thank you!

Gardening made easy!

Gardening can be very hard and challenging, especially for a beginner like who has lived all his life in the city and just recently moved to the countryside, this book was useful and essential to me, it delivered all the tools to maintain well organized and sharp green space on my garden, now I finally can call it the paradise garden lol, I highly recommend it

Maybe ok for beginners

Very thin on content or any real depth, scratching the surface on most elements. For a total beginner it might provide a spark for topics to look into further but it was the first Audible book I’ve stopped part way through as it felt like a waste of time. The delivery was very flat also. Shame.

Very enjoyable

I've been gardening and designing my gardens for 30 years, and also done RHS courses in horticulture and garden design so wasn't sure how I'd find this audiobook, but I think it's excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I found it was quite like revision notes on everything I'd learned, the ideas were not new but summarised and put into thie right places. It is very well organized and logical with no rambling repetition and is incredibly compact so don't be fooled by the listening time. Every sentence contains something useful. It also fits comfortably into a gardening session, and is the perfect audio accompaniment to doing the garden.

Great tips

I found this very easy to follow and the tips don't require you to be an expert gardener. Great explanations throughout, I'll be making some tweaks to my garden before the summer's up :)

🌻 Life Begins The Day You Start A Garden ⛲

A very useful book. This is the one book you would need to have a great garden for your house. Author Kate Molina's book is like a finely manicured & landscaped garden. She has structured it well and it encompasses everything to do with gardening & landscaping the full outside area of your house, covering the front, the back and also the sides. She has researched the subject well and has dug up a lot of dirt for us! The audio book comes with a handy downloadable PDF which helped me a lot.

What I liked about the book is, the author accentuates among other things:
- The needs & benefits of proper landscaping,
- That best outdoor spaces encompass both, a feeling of enclosure & openness.

The author gives lots and lots of practical advice & suggestions on how to lay paths & steps; how to select flowers & vegetables depending on the sunlight; how to attract butterflies and repel mosquitoes by selecting the right variety of plants.

The narration of Rebecca Johnson is excellent and she 'grows' on you.

I highly recommend this book to all gardeners, non-gardeners and anyone who wants to increase the value of their house and maintain good health as well!

What a beautiful and helpful book!

This audiobook instantly caught my eyes as I was looking for an audiobook as I just started re-planning our garden these months.
This audiobook doesn't just have a good cover. The well-organized content also teaches us how to create our stylish and modern garden and maintain balance in different views. The author does have an Aesthetic sense and really helps people designing their gardens. I invite my friends to take a look in my new garden, and they say it's splendid and cozy! I'd recommend this book to those who want to make a change to their garden!

Let's get out those shovels!

I am a new homeowner and the house needs WORK when it comes to gardening and curb appeal, which is how I found this book! I enjoyed listening to this well-narrated book on gardening and it gave me a great number of ideas to work with. It also suggested something that I had never even thought of, and that's if your landscaping is complementary to that of your neighbors! Thank you Kate for all the inspiration!

Coming Up Roses!

I got this audiobook for my parents who are now retired and want to enjoy their garden. The guide was logically and intelligently written. The narration was clear and well-paced. I liked that the audiobook came with a pdf version, as dad likes listening to information and mum likes reading information.
