Garden Stone presents visual inspiration for creative ways to use stone in gardens, coupled with the practical information needed to carry out those ideas in home landscapes. More than 250 full-color photographs demonstrate how gardeners can exploit the contrasting textures and colors of stone and plants to create all kinds of stone projects.

Basic information and clear examples help readers enjoy the magic of working with stone. Projects include patterned stone mosaic walkways, simple meditation gardens, a dry streambed planted with water-conserving plants, a raised herb garden, a pocket pond, a stone-filled water garden, and stone and water features that attract birds, butterflies, and other wildlife.
