Introduction

Award-winning garden photojournalist Debra Lee Baldwin authored the Timber Press bestsellers Designing with Succulents, Succulent Container Gardens, and Succulents Simplified. Debra’s half-acre garden near San Diego has been featured in Better Homes & Gardens and other publications. She specializes in showing how to use sculptural, waterwise and easy-care succulents in a wide variety of appealing and creative applications.

Debra’s perspective on design was fine-tuned as a scout for Sunset magazine, where she learned what she calls “the Sunset aesthetic.” It’s evident in everything she shows in her books, newsletters, videos and presentations.
