Love it! Has everything I need to know to make my Coloradoscape in my backyard, including zones (4b for Castle Rock) and wonderful pictures. All one needs to do is read, pick out what they want, and then plant it - all the planning is done for you in this awesome book! (Make sure your soil is prepared well, first though, so your plants don't die)! Highly recommend this book.
