Publisher Comments:

Innovative landscaping techniques can turn even the driest garden into a vibrant, healthy paradise. The secret lies in xeriscaping, an approach that includes zoning, appropriate planning, soil improvement, efficient irrigation, suitable maintenance techniques, and careful plant selection. Filled with full-color photographs of successful, beautiful gardens, this authoritative and practical guide includes everything you need to know to design and maintain a thriving garden--even if your area has scarce water supply, lack of rainfall, or free-draining soil. Find out how to evaluate your site, decide on your personal requirements, develop a plan, and choose plants. Understand your soil and enhance it with mulch, fertilizers, and other means. Illustrated design schemes, a convenient and comprehensive directory of more than fifty plants, and plenty of expert advice help you meet nature's challenges and transform your garden into anything you want it to be: a formal, structured enclosure, a romantic haven, or a family playground.
