Rock Gardens
Rock gardens are as diverse as gardeners, and Rock Garden Design and Construction, by the North American Rock Garden Society and editor Jane McGary (Timber Press, 2003; $29.95), offers a look at many different ways to pair rocks with plants. The garden photos are inspirational, and the instructions are comprehensive, covering the mechanics of preparing soil, placing rocks, selecting appropriate plants, and more.
