I just bought my first new home, and, although the landscaping is complete, I know nothing about gardening, lawn care, planting flowers, vegetables, etc. I was wondering if you could recommend a beginner's book that teaches not only how to care for an existing garden, but how to add to it to make it look more appealing.

Gardening for Dummies and Landscaping for Dummies will cover the basics. Gardening generally refers to improving the soil in specific beds to intensively grow flowers and vegetables. Landscaping generally refers to trees, shrubs, lawn and hardscape features (patios, walkways, etc.) Good luck!
