    One thought on “Outside the Not So Big House: Creating the Landscape of Home”

    1. I read this book for home landscaping/garden design ideas and was disappointed. I had previously read Julie Moir Messervy's _The Inward Garden_ and found it much more useful. Reading Outside the Not So Big House, I felt there was a disconnect between the home design aspect and the garden design aspect, and neither aspect was discussed adequately. BUT, there are great photos and layouts of a number of greatly-varied landscapes and in the end one of the photos did validate an idea I had been tossi [...]

    3. Outside the Not So Big House is, perhaps somewhat obviously, part of Sarah Susanka's "Not So Big" series; Susanka is listed a co-author although her content seems to be limited to side bars.In general, when it comes to books like these, I prefer books that are focused on principles rather than case studies. Outside The Not So Big House is a book of case studies. The principles are there but buried. Mostly, the reader is presented with descriptions of home after home. I suspect that I would have [...]

    4. I have fallen in love with all the books in the "not so big house" series. They are so reassuringly sensible and reasonable in our greedy, profligate, ridiculous times. Everybody wants more, more, more- but only for themselves and they don't want to share with others (yes, I am talking to you - 1%). This series is all about what we really need to make ourselves comfortable homes and the answer is not 10,000 square feet of house. This volume is on landscaping.

    5. I thought this would be about gardening on an urban or suburban tract home lot but no, this had the usual custom homes on huge lots with gorgeous views and pools. It was all about maximizing the views of the lake not about minimizing the view of your neighbor's RV. The book was beautiful but not overly useful because it didn't really show many practical solutions for the small lots that go with most small homes.

    6. This, like the Not So Big House books, is very interesting. Susanka and her landscape friend tie the inside to the beautifully developed outside by creating, like so many wonderful gardens, a series of rooms, each special and private and lovely. Many great ideas for making the personal landscape striking and pleasant.

    7. There were some beautiful homes and properties in this book. Some good ideas and it got me thinking about how best to utilize my own piece of land. However, I was disappointed that so many of the homes and yards were quite large. Not exactly "not so big". This is good for ideas and inspiration, but not so great for advice, etc.

    8. I'm totally ready for Spring! Went to the Home and Garden Show at the IX Centerw many gardens with grand ideas. This book is great for getting ideas too. Real life people with real life yardseven if they are in Boston, Colarado Rockies, San Francisco and Santa Fe and can afford architects and landscape designers! I always like to learn from the experts.

    9. This would be good if you were building a home or doing a large-scale remodel. Helps with the concepts of linking the inside to the out. Not as helpful for established homes/yards. Still, a beautiful book.

    10. Good pictures.I didn't think the text matched up very well with the pictures of the gardens. Also, the diagrams were confusing, lots of arrows and large pictures divided up into panes. I wouldn't buy this book, but it was worth reading from the library.

    11. This book has helped me conceptualize outdoor spaces in a new way that is more coherent than before. I love gardening but sometimes have difficulty planning for the big picture. Very good inspiration.

    12. If you want to change the way you think about your house and yard and gardens this is the book for you! I love the approach of these two authors its not about size or grandeur or cash on hand but about space and how to use it to create harmony between your house, nature and the outside.

    13. Thankfully, I received this book as a gift. Pretty watered down. Great pictures and good ideas, but a disappointment after the Not So Big House and Creating the Not So Big House.

    14. Geared more toward the landscape designer but definitely great ideas and lush pictures. Review just as the updated companion text to Not So Big House.

    15. Not as helpful. Kind of seems like it's written for people with millions of dollars. It would be more helpful to talk about attainable designs and solving simple problems.

    16. I love the ideas for designing indoor-outdoor spacesthat respond to modern lifestyles.I'd wish I can combine some day architecture and naturein the home and in the garden.It is a goal
