I got this book and the Wildlawns by Stevie Daniels. This book, though smaller, has more actual photographs. It is set up in short reader-friendly sections. Though not thorough, it still covers a surprising lot of ground for a small book. Includes: specific lawn types w/ step by step instructions on how to change lawn, grasses/plantings suggested for different areas of country, chart, nursery sources, and an index. Although TX is included in broader regions mentioned, it is not singled out like CA, FL, and CO are.
