Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This encyclopedic treatment of ground covers opened gardeners' eyes to the unexpected alternatives to the conventional lawn or the common ivies and pachysandras. David MacKenzie's nursery, Hortech, specializes in ground covers, including native plants, ferns, ornamental grasses, and variegated plants. A detailed chart aids in the selection of the most suitable plants for various situations, leading to practical yet imaginative plantings for even awkward and difficult sites. Complete information on planting, maintenance, and propagation will lead to rugged, trouble-free ground covers that add to a garden's beauty while minimizing the gardener's work.

Book News Annotation:

Presents authoritative information on selecting, planting, maintaining, and propagating a wide selection of plants that can and should be used as groundcovers. While the author, a respected commercial grower of groundcovers, treats the usual suspects (vinca, ivy, pachysandra, viola), he also discusses plants such as smaller rhododendrons, vines, hellebores, or grasses that can work equally well. Of special interest are chapters on selecting the right plant for various terrains and an extensive groundcover selection chart.
