Home Landscaping offers a basic guide to landscaping around your house, including design, plant selection, dealing with pests, and more. Because it gives you the essential details on a wide variety of projects, this book is a great one to have around both when you're making plans and when you're ready to do the actual projects.
The warm weather we had earlier this week was like a quick taste of spring, and it inspired me to start planning in earnest for the vegetable garden I'll plant later this year. So far I'm thinking peppers, carrots, lettuce, broccoli, and corn, though I'm sure I'll find more goodies to add to the list. Did you know that you can check out seed catalogs at CPL?
