Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Paradise Found, Rebecca Cole presents simple solutions to gardening in small, difficult, or awkward spaces — the reality that seems to face so many gardeners today. Whether it's a tiny terrace, an oddly shaped yard, or a location both shady and sunny, Rebecca helps gardeners overcome the limitations of their environments. She offers practical guidelines for placement, color, and form and she champions the use of hanging plants and containers to create beautiful, easy-to-maintain gardens. Filled with hundreds of lush color photographs, Paradise Found is an inspiring guide to gardening anywhere.

Paradise Found, by acclaimed author Rebecca Cole, offers a wealth of simple, beautiful solutions to common gardening difficulties. Whether a garden is too small or too big, too shady or too exposed, too empty or too cluttered, Rebecca explains how to overcome its limitations to create a unique and inviting garden paradise.

Illustrated with hundreds of inspiring color photographs, Paradise Found is a wonderfully practical book that simplifies the challenges of your garden space, from facing up to the realities of your space to envisioning your ideal garden to understanding the basics of placement, color, and form.

Drawing on years of experience and a no-nonsense approach, Rebecca explains how to transform an awkward terrace, how to improve a porch, and what to do with the overgrown wilderness you've somehow inherited. She celebrates the possibilities of hanging plants and container gardens and provides tips on year-round planting choices, easy irrigation systems, quick winterizing techniques, and where to find intriguing — and affordable — garden furniture and architectural elements. Rebecca's solutions are always fresh, creative, and remarkably sensible. Whatever the gardening challenge, Paradise Found will appeal to anyone looking to create a bit of heaven right at home.
