Book review: Striking Succulent Gardens by Gabriel Frank
Gabriel Frank is a landscape designer based in Morro Bay on the Central Coast of California. His company, Gardens by Gabriel, has created a number of spectacular gardens where succulents are front and center. I visited one of them on a 2016 trip to Morro Bay.
Gabriel's reputation as a succulent master extends well beyond the Morro Bay area; I've heard his name mentioned up and down California. I'd secretly been hoping to see a coffee-table book of Gabriel's gardens one day, and while I will have to wait a little longer for that, here is the next best thing: a how-to guide on creating your own succulent garden.
Striking Succulent Gardens: Plants and Plans for Designing Your Low-Maintenance Landscape is Gabriel Frank's first book. It was published in January 2021 by Ten Speed Press and sells for an affordable $19.99.
