Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An "abundant garden" is one that is effusive, emotional, demonstrative, and unrestrained. ABUNDANT GARDEN identifies nine design aspects of an abundant garden-and shows how each one is used in a specific garden. Each garden is located on Bainbridge Island, Seattle, WA, in the heart of one of America's most highly regarded horticultural "edens." The book takes the reader on a tour with insightful and imaginative photographs and beautifully written text.

Includes brief essays before each garden "journey" that will describe the abundancy concept that the related garden exemplifies.

Includes specific plant recommendations and practical recommendations that will address the needs of gardeners across the country.

This is a wonderful book with gorgeous illustrations of densely planted, naturualisic gardens. Native plants and exotics are co-mingled in dense profusion to create a lush and effusive celebration of botanical delights.

In some locals, the code enforcement officers dread these types of gardens, seeking to force homeowners to maintain a carefully groomed and artificial look. But if you love the outdoors, the wilderness, privacy and wildlife, this book demonstrates the beauty of a garden that approaches a jungle or forest, replete with thick canopies, masses of bloom, luxuriant foliage and mysterious hidden spots.

It also shows the effective use of man-made items, such as old rusty bicycles, golf balls, and other eccentric items placed in a garden to add interest and the unexpected.
