Indeed, I find garden-making becomes more joyful every time, as each new garden more closely approximates that inner garden hidden in the garden-maker's heart." —Ann Lovejoy, from the Introduction Should you enhance your new backyard with a simple vegetable garden or a trellised arbor, or both? Ann Lovejoy invites you to ruminate over what your garden will be used for, what your aesthetic tastes are, and how to implement them. Whether you're designing a tiny urban garden, a suburban space, or a rural retreat, Gardening from Scratch can show you how.
