Wow. Who knows? It's hard to say. I suppose the longest sections (Plants, Trees) took a good 16 hours or more on the computer (not including the pictures I've taken over the years). And the smaller sections (rock features, deco. grasses, groundcovers, etc.) sometimes took as little as 2 hours to complete from start to finish.

IN and around the MIlwaukee area our local technicalcollege has a series of at least four courses that each require students to mae their own binder similar to what was done here. The students must find pictures and all info on all plants in course (first one is trees and shrubs 120 total plants!). There are advanced classes that go more in depth on the cultivars, annuals, perennials, bulbs, etc. A pain in the rectum to make a book like that but I have found my invaluable when meting with potential customers.
