"Put your desert eyes on," is Scott Calhoun's first advice to gardeners facing arid Southwestern regions with extreme climate conditions. Then he shows how to translate the natural beauty of the region-mountains, canyons, sculptural succulents, and incandescent sky-into gorgeous yet water-thrifty landscape designs that complement existing architecture as well as the environment that surrounds it. Spectacular photographs help to tell the tale, showing flowering plants that are also tough as nails, vivid purple walls, and cacti with "punk rock hairdos," along with creative touches drawn from Native American and pop culture. Gardeners at all levels will find insight, inspiration, tips, and tricks to help them create and foster beauty in the desert.

Great book for desert climates, and probably very good for inland San Diego gardens. The photos have great inspiration for plantings and landscaping. It's also clearly written by a very knowledgeable person about desert plantings. Not much for my coastal San Diego garden, but I can appreciate that this would be useful for some people here.
