Great for the 1st time landscaper!!

My husband is a carpenter and very good with working on things in the home. He needed a little guidance for outdoor projects that he never had done before. This book was even great for me who has no knowledge or training in building or landscaping. The two of us redid our entire back yard and it looks wonderful....we added a deck, patio, retaining wall, and lots of plants. Now we are looking forward to working on the front yard next Spring. This book will definitely get more use.

nice book!!

This book truly gives you the most "bang for your buck". If you are interested in learning how to do a wide variety of things and are somewhat mechanically inclined.....THIS is the book for you! I have my own contracting business and refer to this book many times for that "extra" insight I need on a project. The diagrams and pictures are very helpful and I truly would recommend this book to anyone!

A boon for us non-carpenter, born-in-the-big-city types.

Generally when I used think about home improvements (indoor or out) I thought about calling somebody (experienced or not) to help me with it. It was usually at this point that the neighbors would bring their kids inside. . . Just to be safe. . . To be honest, until just after I bought this book (a year ago) I didn't think I had the inate skills needed to do something as alien to modern men as replacing a fawcet washer, much less replacing the whole fawcet and installing a greenhouse!! This book, aside from not being very good at helping you lift heavy things, is all the help you will need to complete hundreds of different improvement projects in and around your house.The skill gauge is very acurate in it's time estimates and tells you what level of skills you should have before starting a project - This is helpful if only so you can put your local fire department on call. With all the information on tools, their usage, and the type, amount and quality of materials you will need this book could make Homer Simpson look like Martha Stewart. . . Well, maybe more like Tim Allen, but you get the point.I highly recommend this book and the Home Depot "HOME IMPROVEMENTS 1-2-3" book as well!! Truly money well spent!

The Handymans Hand Guide

A user-friendly search manual of OutDoor/Indoor do-it-yourself projects. This book is a quick read with adaquate illustrations depicting vital home upkeep/improvement projects in simple lay terms. Sport reading for the seasoned professional, critical for would-be's.

Excellent step-by-step guide on how to do anything outdoors.

It's springtime and time to fix-up the house. One of my projects is to repair some brick and mortar that joins my flower beds with my driveway. I'm clueless on how to work with this stuff but I'm at the Home Depot looking for supplies and information which is where I find this book. It's set up in twelve sections: Fences and Gates, Landscaping Walls, Decks, Patios, Sheds, Walks and Steps, Trellises and Arbors, Garden Beds and Edging, Furniture, Electrical, Plumbing and Drainage, and Concrete. It's complete with a skill scale (so you can figure out if you even want to try to tackle this project), safety alerts, estimated time (based on experience), tells you all the tools required and all the stuff you'll need. It's absolutely complete and extremely well laid out with pictures galore. A "must have" book for the weekend warrior.
