A few novel planting schemes, one or two specimen plants, or some eye-catching structural plants are what are needed to change the look of your garden and improve areas such as dull borders or boring expanses of lawn, so Kingsbury insists. The emphasis here is on enhancing existing gardens by analyzing their good and bad points. He explains the importance of using color to create an impact and lists practical color schemes by the seasons. A chapter on creating interest with what he describes as architectural plants deals with forms and shapes. There is a chapter on specimen plants (tree and shrubs) and chapters discussing the importance of using fragrance in the garden and the advantages of shade-loving plants. Kingsbury writes about "problem sites" (waterlogged, dry, acid, and alkaline soils), gives tips on growing plants in containers, and outlines several projects that deal with transforming such areas as a narrow border, a patio, and a small pond into more attractive sites. Each chapter includes a plant directory of suitable flowers, trees, and shrubs. All 160 pages are in color. George Cohen
