Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The hustle and bustle of city life leaves town dwellers with little time and even less room for gardening--but with a powerful craving for the privacy and pleasure a secluded bit of nature can bring. Now, with the help of this lusciously photographed guide, urban gardeners can create that very special space for relaxation and entertainment...in a mere one hour a week! In the backyard, on a roof terrace, down in the basement, or up on a balcony, it's easy to overcome every obstacle and have a garden geared to your personality, lifestyle, and needs. The key is in the design, which can make awkward boundaries, bad views, and crowding seem to disappear like magic. Vital information on labor-saving techniques keeps maintenance to an absolute minimum, and every garden layout is cross-referenced with sections outlining the upkeep for that style. A directory covers trees, shrubs, and ground cover plants for every climate and soil-even specimens that are pollution-resistant!

Synopsis:

"...myriad suggestions for materials and ornamentation to enhance the garden environment....Plenty of alluring photographs illustrate many garden styles, with line drawings complementing...advice on the nuts and bolts of gardening ...A directory lists specific trees, shrubs, and ground covers recommended for landscaping in a limited area....a final chapter does suggest ideas for labor-saving methods."--Booklist. "With the help of the beautifully photographed guide, urban gardeners can create that very special space for relaxation and entertainment. The key is in the design, which can make awkward boundaries, bad views and crowding seem to disappear like magic."--Flower & Garden.
