While exploring Half Price Books garden book section, I found a wonderful book called Front Yard Gardens - Growing More Than Grass  by Liz Primeau.  It is beautifully photographed by Andrew Leyerle.

Inside you will find garden suggestions for just about any type of front yard garden you may want to create.  With the trend to reduce the amount of grass in our yards, as well as the need to fertilize or use pesticides, this is a great book to get ideas on how to approach changing your landscape.  The wonderful pictures are also an armchair tour of some lovely spaces.
