Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is possible to have a great garden anywhere in Australia, even under the toughest water restrictions. Good Gardens with Less Water will show you how. A companion to Kevin Handreck's best-selling Gardening Down-Under, this new book is a practical guide to gardening with limited water. This beautifully illustrated, full-color book contains a wealth of information on such key topics as: how to improve soil structure to maximize the retention of water for use by plants; selecting drought-tolerant native and exotic plants; working out how much water to apply to different types of plants; choosing the best lawn grass for your climate; rainwater harvesting and use; and how to avoid problems when greywater is used in the garden. With specific chapters devoted to watering systems and equipment, mulches, planting techniques and potted plants, this book offers practical solutions for anyone who wishes to garden sustainably.
