Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Few gardens can transport visitors to wild and rugged landscapes as well as rock gardens. Eye-catching rock gardens are among the most challenging — and satisfying — expressions of the gardener's craft. A true rock garden is a specialized habitat that allows the gardener to grow plants that do not flourish anywhere else. This book offers the first comprehensive treatment of building rock gardens in all parts of North America. Topics covered include rock placement, materials, and planting and maintenance. Variations on the rock garden theme, from planting troughs to creating water features are also discussed. The book presents regional styles and techniques and profiles a dozen public rock gardens from Oregon to Newfoundland. More than 100 inspiring photos accompany the lively text.

Book News Annotation:

Members of the North American Rock Garden Society introduce the aesthetics and pragmatics of this popular style of gardening for diverse conditions. They include details on noteworthy public gardens, color photos, soil information, and an annotated bibliography. McGary, who gardens near Portland, Oregon, edits the Rock Garden Quarterly.
