Library Journal - Library Journal
Written for those who believe that today's typically landscaped home is wasteful and ecologically inefficient, this book preaches a low-tech approach to gardening. Creasy ( The Complete Book of Edible Landscaping ) describes the practical virtues of growing indigenous wild plants and old-fashioned nonhybrid varieties, in low-maintenance (or at least lesser-maintenance) settings. The emphasis throughout is on the philosophy of ecologically responsible gardening rather than how-to-do-it. The 12 theme gardens presented include gardens of edibles, gardens that re-create the natural habitat, and a ``child's garden.'' Especially interesting and useful are the lists of plants and seeds and their sources, and the extensive booklists. Recommended. (Color photographs not seen.) Malcolm K. Hill, Four Cty. Lib. System, Binghamton, N.Y.
