It is impossible not to feel inspired by the unique combination of helpful guidance and enthusiastic encouragement of experimentation. As Charles proves, there is no plot of land too wild to tame, a building site too overgrown with weeds or an unwanted lawn that can't be turned into a productive and beautiful garden area.-- Chris Allen * Gardening TImes *
This is yet another book that will, as a manual, be on my bookshelf, but it will sure spend more in my hand than on the shelf.-- Michael Smith * Green (Living) Review *
