Good ideas and well laid out.
Ideas on plant pairings, layout (all areas of the lawn & all light conditions) and preparation.
Instructions on how to put in a pathway, a fence, a trellis, etc. with decent instructions which will give you an idea of what you're in for if you decide to tackle these projects.
Plans and layouts for front, side and back yards to help you plan your space.

An idea laden book. Well worth the read through.
