Editorial Reviews

Alice Joyce
The aim of this guide is not so much to provide practical advice as to introduce the principles of gardening in harmony with nature. Profusely illustrated with photographs, charts, drawings, and watercolors, the book outlines important considerations when planning a new garden. The goal is to design a habitat that will be appealing to birds, butterflies, and a wide range of fauna. Six separate regions of the country are identified in "The Backyard Habitat" section, which makes up the greater part of the text. Nearly 150 native plants are recommended, with more than 40 specific species noted for each region. The handsome format and ecology-conscious commentary make this a fine selection for gardening collections.
