There's nothing quite as functional -- or as beautiful -- as nature's own building blocks. Often shaped and weathered by natural forces, each stone has its own unique look and feel.

Used as elements in a carefully planned landscape design, stonework can add an artful organization to your outdoor spaces. Creating sturdy walls, private patios, graceful gardens, and offering unlimited opportunities for your imagination to soar -- with features like ponds, streams and waterfalls that can transform your property into a sylvan sanctuary.

From cover to cover, this delightful book offers hundreds of practical design ideas illustrated with colorful photographs and drawings, all divided into six sections.

Paths and steps -- Find out how to build a rustic cobblestone walkway from rabble rock excavated during construction or a formal entry out of volcanic rock cut into bricklike pavers with a brilliant purple color.

Terraces, patios and garden spaces -- Learn how to extend your living space by creating a flagstone patio for outdoor dining, a scenic retreat punctuated with irregular stones and natural plantings, or a poolside enclave with a fieldstone surface and matching retaining walls.

Walls -- Discover creative ways to design natural boundaries that blend with your landscape, from simple dry stone walls to a more delicate presence with native fieldstone held together with mortar.

Pools, ponds and fountains -- See how stone can give water its shape and form with the stone-like appearance of stamped concrete surrounding your pool or natural-looking ponds, streams and waterfalls you can design and build yourself.

Finishing touches -- Find out how to surround your home with artful flourishes like the eye-catching textures of a garden border featuring a geometric collage of salvaged brick and variously flat stones in a variety of shapes and colors.

When you flip through this popular idea book, you'll be amazed at all the ways you can enhance your property with stonescaping designs. Whatever your budget or locale, it will inspire you to get creative with nature's most versatile building material.
