Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Much of modern garden design is about controlling nature to achieve a desired effect. But for the eco-conscious homeowner, the best garden designer is Mother Nature, and following her lead can result in a beautiful low-maintenance landscape that requires fewer resources, attracts natural wildlife, and saves time and money.

In The Naturescaping Workbook, author Beth O'Donnell Young sets forth an easy-to-follow, do-it-yourself plan for gardeners of all skill levels. Her step-by-step approach teaches gardeners to understand their own natural habitat and to nurture the native eco-systems that exist in their yard. And the payoff is huge. By simply becoming aware of the natural wonders in the backyard, anyone can gain a more beautiful garden and take a big step toward bringing nature home.

Book News Annotation:

This colorful guide to naturescaping examines the development of seasonal, sustainable landscaping practices for home gardeners, and provides step-by-step instructions for a wide variety of projects that conserve water, use on site composting and fertilizations, and develop habitats that are attractive to local birds and wildlife. The work includes numerous full color photographs, as well as technical drawings, checklists, and "homework" projects. O'Donnell is a professional landscape designer.
