Conventions Used in This Book

The following conventions are used throughout the text to make things consistent and easy to understand:

  • New terms appear in italics and are closely followed by an easy-to-understand definition.
  • Bold highlights the key words in bulleted lists and the action parts of numbered steps.
  • All Web addresses appear in monofont.

One thing you should know is that I use the terms landscape and garden interchangeably. It's easy to argue about semantics, but for most people, the space around their home is their garden or their landscaping. To some degree, the term you prefer to use depends on how you manage things, with garden having a more active flavor than landscape. But hey, there's really little or no difference, and frankly, I figure that reading the words landscape and landscaping over and over would be a little irritating after a while.
