Comments: Walks Walls and Patios Review If you know absolutely nothing about creating walls, walkways, and patios, then Walks, Walls and Patios is a book you'll want to read. This book covers every aspect of hardscaping your property and has detailed diagrams, instructions on figuring out exactly how much material to buy, and several photo galleries filled with design ideas. The photo galleries are actually my favorite part of the book, since they really have good ideas and designs.
The book is very easy to use and very well written. The layout is great. Although this book doesn't have a ton of bells and whistles, it is exactly what it is supposed to be - a clear, easy to understand instructional book on how to make your own walls, walkways and patios.
