There are so very many garden design books out that it's impossible to list them all, but one favorite is "Taylor's Guide to Garden Design" (ISBN# 0-395-46784-5).Another "must have" book is Sunset Western Garden Book (ISBN# 0-376-03851-9). Not only are there suggested plants for all occasions, but the descriptions and cultural requirements are very complete. Finally, for basic gardening information, I consult "Rodale's Organic Gardening Encyclopedia" (ISBN# 0-87596-599-7). These three books will certainly give you a head start in your garden renovation.
