In her book, Home Outside: Creating the Landscape You Love, Julie Moir Messervy takes you step by step on how to have, not only a yard which looks fantastic and that you can live with, but one in which you can live. So often American yards are merely accessories to a house, looking pretty but having little to no functionality about them. Messervy challenges readers to change that and create living spaces out of such a precious commodity. This well organized book contains, explanations, diagrams, and gorgeous photos as it encourages you to get out in your yard and live. I am certain to refer to it again as we work toward building our dream home.
