At thirty-five, Leslie Buck made an impulsive decision to put her personal life on hold to pursue her passion. Leaving behind a full life of friends, love, and professional security, she became the first American woman to learn pruning from one of the most storied landscaping companies in Kyoto. Cutting Back recounts Buck's bold journey and the revelations she has along the way. During her apprenticeship in Japan, she learns that the best Kyoto gardens look so natural they appear untouched by human hands, even though her crew spends hours meticulously cleaning every pebble in the streams. She is taught how to bring nature's essence into a garden scene, how to design with native plants, and how to subtly direct a visitor through a landscape. But she learns the most important lessons from her fellow gardeners: how to balance strength with grace, seriousness with humour, and technique with heart. Cutting Back is an insightful debut memoir and story of personal growth that will appeal to gardeners and non-gardeners alike.

Take a visual tour of gardens and homes in one Pacific Coast area, the South Bay of Los Angeles County, which includes Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, and Redondo Beach. A distinctive feature of Southern California's beach communities is how often homeowners enclose their front yards. Because of the dense development in the residential neighborhoods adjacent to the ocean, some property lines have been clearly defined by fences, garden walls, and ornaments. Here find compelling photographs that will inspire homeowners and gardeners who are looking to define their own outdoor spaces. Organized by the function of the fences and types of enclosures, this book also includes sidebars about the evolution and history of some unique property divisions and homeowner "stories."
