Perhaps it was a veneration of the grand displays of aristocratic European gardens that convinced many of us that home gardens should be self-contained aesthetic preserves. Landscape designer Rick Darke (The American Woodland Garden) and ecologist Douglas Tallany (Bringing Nature Home; In Harmony with Nature) had made it their calling to reject that idea by teaching us how to bring the larger landscape into our backyard flora. A biodiverse garden, they assure us, can be both beautiful and ecologically vibrant. Filled with specific design suggestions and environmental ideas, The Living Landscape brings new ideas to the table-and your outdoor garden.
