1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money 5 Jan. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
There are loads of books out there that are much better for the beginning gardener. I accidentaly purchased this on kindle and I am a landscape gardener by profession. i realise the Dummies franchise must make lots of money but the content is very poor. i guess they rely on them being given as gifts. Look elsewhere.

3.0 out of 5 stars Landscaping Basics for Dummies (Mini Kindle/iPad version) 21 Jun. 2011
By Old Nerd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was the first Kindle/iPad type book I purchased. I should have paid more attention to the words "Mini" and "Dummies" in the title. In my opinion, What I got was more of an outline for "Dummies" than a "book" than a book for "dummies". If you are looking for a simple, casual read about gardens you might like this. But if you are looking for a book to help you garden, I can't recommend it.
I am a retired teacher, and grading this as an information source, I could not give the Mini Edition a grade higher than a C-. Of course, the price is just 99c.

This is a short overview of the basics of landscaping. For those of us who know nothing about landscaping this mini book is quick and informative.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Basic 24 May 2014
By Zona E Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really expected more from this book. The information included was accurate, but so basic as to be unhelpful in actually planning any kind of landscaping. It should be named, "Preliminary to Starting to Learn About Landscaping". It wasn't bad, but had no substance and was of no help to me at all. I was disappointed.
