Overview

With a keen eye for aesthetics matched by a strong concern for the environment, garden expert

Stephen Orr has developed a sense of what a modern garden should be: small, visually pleasing, and

responsible. In Tomorrow’s Garden, he presents gardens in 14 American cities that have been scaled

back and simplified without sacrificing beauty or innovative design.

 

A devoted supporter of the organic gardening movement, Orr advises gardeners to think about their gardens as part of an interconnected whole with the surrounding environment—with an eye to water usage, local ecology, and preservation of resources. However, for those who are afraid that a sustainable garden means a lack of flora and fauna, Orr believes that a garden, first and foremost, should be a thing of beauty. He encourages flower lovers to plant flowers, and he showcases gardens filled with traditional and exotic plants that are designed with both visual appeal and the environment in mind.

 

With detailed case studies, stunning photographs, and an appendix of resources and information to

help gardeners achieve their ecological best, Tomorrow’s Garden will teach you the true definition of sustainability and show you how to create beauty without excess in the 21st century and beyond.

Editorial Reviews

Dominique Browning
…[Orr] resists a didactic tone, concentrating instead on describing small plots whose modest beauties speak volumes. There are intriguing designs here for any gardener. Orr's excellent book is also a hymn to resourcefulness.
