book9 How about an outdooor shower?

I bought the book used and it was well worth the price. Most of his projects are labor intensive with out alot of cash outlay. He also tries to point you toward what type of garden your personality type would be happy with. If nothing else it might save you from doing something you might not be happy with and gives you insight to how a pro landscaper thinks and designs different projects. Everything from an outdoor pizza oven to a solar powered chicken fence.
