Design a succulent garden of your own, with inspiration, advice, and instructional step-by-step projects for container gardens, small-space gardens, mixed gardens, and more.

You can’t help but be mesmerized by the eye-catching geometric forms and jewel-toned colors of succulents. But how do you grow these beauties in your own garden? One of the only books dedicated to succulent garden design, Striking Succulent Gardens is a stylish, modern gardening book for beginners and enthusiasts alike.

Known for his colorful approach and bold use of varied textures and shapes, garden designer Gabriel Frank offers practical ideas, simple concepts, stunning full-color photography, step-by-step instructions for a dozen different gardens, plant recommendations, basic succulent care, and an inspired approach to creating living art in your own garden. For those in colder climates, there is a list of cold-hardy succulents and advice for bringing container gardens indoors for the winter, making succulent gardens achievable no matter where you live.

Tough, water-wise, wildly popular, and nearly indestructible, succulents will transform your outdoor space, providing gardens of every size with minimal maintenance and maximum impact.

Publication History: Trade Paperback Original

UNIQUE: One of the only books dedicated to succulent garden design featuring stunning, modern photography. Most other succulent books focus on indoor applications and crafts, and the few garden-centric books available contain outdated photography and design.

PRODUCT FEATURES: Trade paper original with flaps, with 150 full-color photos of gorgeous residential gardens plus close-ups of the fantastic forms and features of individual succulents.

ACCLAIMED GARDEN DESIGNER: “This is truly one of the most spectacular succulent-centric private gardens I’ve seen. It was a standout even in a town where succulents play a prominent part in public and private landscaping. A beautiful slice of succulent heaven.”—Gerhard Bock, Succulents and More, on Gabriel Frank’s design of the Marino garden in Morro Bay, California.

MEDIA COVERAGE: Not just limited to gardening media, succulents are also loved by lifestyle, home, and design media. Succulent books like The Bold Dry Garden (2016) and Xerophile (2017) were featured in the New York Times upon their release.

EXPANDED ZONES: While succulents typically grow best outdoors in warm climates like the West, Southwest, and South, Striking Succulent Gardens discusses the spread of succulents to the Northwest, Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, and more, and provides a list of cold-hardy succulents. The chapter on outdoor container gardens explains the steps for bringing containers indoors for the winter, making succulent gardens accessible to gardeners in all USDA Zones.

Gabriel Frank is the founder of Gardens by Gabriel, a landscape design/build firm in Morro Bay, California, known for its distinctive and dramatic succulent designs. A graduate of the New York Botanical Garden School of Professional Horticulture, he has been honored by America in Bloom and featured in Better Homes and Gardens’s Country Garden magazine.

“So many designers incorporate succulents in their designs these days, but few do it as well as Gabriel Frank. His painterly use of color, texture, and structure bring the spaces to life. His signature feeling, flow, and careful plant selections take my breath away. I’ve had the luxury of sitting in his gardens for hours, absorbing every detail. And now, with these pages, you can do the same. Enjoy!”—Nan Sterman, water-wise gardener, author of Hot Color, Dry Garden, and host/producer of public television’s A Growing Passion
