By 'Western', they mean western US. Not overly useful for Albertan gardeners but still a lovely book.

A GREAT INSPIRATIONAL BOOK. Such beautiful gardens. Even though it is written for an area much warmer than ours here in Edmonton, I believe most of the ideas could be adapted to overcome the challenges of our climate (besides swimming pools). The gardens have a contemporary feel, yet aren't sterile. The book also takes into consideration climate change and sustainability. As a professional in the industry, I highly recommend this book.
