Natural Gardening in Small Spaces

Natural Gardening in Small Spaces Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the growing recognition that a wisely and sensitively planted garden has a lot to offer to wildlife and the food web, more and more people are looking for ways to make their gardens environmentally friendly. However, gardeners have tended to assume that they need a lot of space to create habitats for wildlife and to evoke wild and natural places. In Natural Gardening in Small Spaces, renowned plantsman Noël Kingsbury refutes that presumption, showing how even in a small garden you can create a sustainable ecosystem that looks great — and, once established, largely looks after itself. More than 150 glorious photographs of small natural gardens provide visual confirmation of Noël Kingsbury's contention that even the smallest garden can provide a natural haven.

Book News Annotation:

Kingsbury continues his promotion of naturalistic planting design by explaining how to create a kind of mini-nature reserve in a backyard or other small space in urban and semi-urban areas—even rooftops. He does not consider food production. As usual with Timber Press, the volume is high quality, and the many lush color photographs do not overpower the text.
