Front Yard Gardens: Growing More Than Grass

Description

Although upkeep is labor intensive and often requires an arsenal of dangerous chemicals to keep it free of weeds and pests, the appeal of a manicured lawn is almost irresistible. But more people are discovering a very attractive alternative.

Packed with practical tips and beautiful photographs, Front Yard Gardens Explores the history of the lawn and our attachment to it Contains examples of front yard gardens from more than seventy gardens across North America Provides step-by-step instructions to start and grow your own front yard garden

Liz Primeau transformed her lawn in a quiet suburb to a mixed garden with a profusion of flowering plants, shrubs, and cacti. She now enjoys an eye-catching front garden that requires no chemicals and less watering than her lawn.

This book includes overall planning and design, and outlines the steps for removing the grass, enriching the soil, and planting. The book is divided into several types of front yard gardens, including cottage, minimalist, secret, neighborhood, downtown, and natural. She discusses the key elements of each style, gives tips on how to create and maintain the garden, and provides a list of complementary plants.

With more than two hundred beautiful photographs taken expressly for this book by Andrew Leyerle, Front Yard Gardens is a sensual treasure-trove of ideas.

Description
The Garden Writers Association of America awarded "Garden Stone" a Garden Globe Award of Achievement for Writing. "The Washington Post "wrote, "Garden Stone is one of the best idea books on using stones in the landscape that I have seen." And "Country Living Gardener "said, "While the book is visually stunning . . . diagrams and step-by-step instructions show how gardeners can make their dreams come true.""Garden Stone "shows you how to add stone to bring texture, color, serenity, and strength to your garden. Author Barbara Pleasant offers more than 40 enchanting designs--from something as simple as a flagstone path to an elaborate Zen-inspired meditation garden. Each project is packed with practical, down-to-earth installation advice, including clear line drawings and instructional diagrams. A comprehensive resource list helps you easily find the tools and materials you need.Pleasant helps gardeners decide which type of stone is best for which kind of design. Limestone, for example, is ideal for stacking to make rock walls. Sandstone is easy to cut for steps and adds warm shades of red, yellow, or chocolate brown to the landscape. Blocks of granite can be used as sturdy paving stones. Pleasant also shows you how to create stone water features, such as fountains and natural-looking ponds and streams. And she provides hundreds of suggestions for plants whose color, texture, and shape will enhance your stone projects.
