From the Back Cover Whether used as a natural ornamental feature, or cut and dressed to make walls, paving, and terraces, stone acts as the "bones" of a garden, giving it an atmosphere of permanence and time-worn distinction.

Stonescaping shows readers how to apply Asian, European, and contemporary design approaches at home, using stone features to solve common site problems and beautify their gardens. Chapters on building walls, paths, terraces, stone-rimmed ponds, rockeries, and trough provide step-by-step instructions for creating these and other design features using basic hand tools.

In addition to its practical and detailed directions for selecting, finding and working with stone, Stonescaping explains how to incorporate the beautify and strength of stone into a number of traditional and modern garden styles.
