    Education and experience are key to good landscaping. Do you wish to learn design, proper planting or care?

    Design is always the first step and that really can't be learned from a book. You can learn the fundamentals, but design is truly an art form. Perhaps you may be best served by seeking the assistance of a designer or someone with more experience.
