Pink flamingos, elves and gnomes, whirligigs, windmills and wishing wells, ceramic geese and plastic ducks, oh my!

Sophisticated lawn and garden magazines might pretend (or prefer) such anomalies don't exist, but this seasoned author/photographer team knows better.

Their research has revealed that, from coast to coast, countless Americans have a love and a penchant for decorating their yards with gizmos that turn the hair of professional landscapers white.

This is the vividly illustrated story of America's most garish gardens and lawns and the individualistic group of nationwide yard enthusiasts who invent and maintain them.

This book is for those who recognize themselves in its pages.

More importantly, writes M.B. Roberts, "It's also for the compulsive lawn-edgers like myself who wouldn't dare drive the metal legs of a pink flamingo into the lawn, but delight in those who do.
