"Our homes' outdoor spaces can--and should--be as welcoming and carefully considered as our living rooms; when treated as extensions of our homes, these spaces enrich our lives immeasurably. That was the guiding principle when, under the direction of editor in chief Michelle Slatalla (whose New York Times style columns were weekly must-reads for a decade), the team behind launched sister site Like Remodelista, Gardenista caters to an older, more established audience (75 percent of readers are over the age of 35) and is known for its sophisticated, well-edited aesthetic. The book contains lushly photographed tours of 12 enviable gardens; planting guides for a variety of climates and color palettes; in-depth case studies on more than a dozen outdoor structures (from yoga studios to chicken coops); do-it-yourself projects; easy-to-implement design ideas; "The Gardenista 100," a guide to timeless everyday objects for the outdoors; plus advice from landscape professionals. Equal parts inspiration and expert intel, Gardenista is both a perfect starting point and an all-in-one manual when questions arise,"

This book had good photos for a quick flip. Some ideas were a lot more focused on aesthetics than practicality though (e.g. dip painting the handles of your garden shovels so that they are glossy and match your perfect black garden potting bench). I liked that there were a variety of gardens from California and the rest of the country. All of the gardens were way fancier and bigger than a typical San Diego city home, though.

A coffee table book for the nice photos, but as a design book ideas is not so great. There's a lot of cements, and run of the mill stuff. Nice locations from different countries.

I was disappointed with this book. As a design book it failed. Some of the pictures are nice to look at but I will probably never check this book out again. 'Fine Gardening Beds & Borders' is much better at giving you ideas on how to design your garden.
