When Laine Cunningham lost a tree in her front yard, she looked at a lot of landscape designs and landscape ideas. Then she began planting a garden. Years later, over half her lawn had been replaced with beautiful plants, flowers, blooming shrubs, and native trees.
Every minute spent planning, planting, weeding, mulching and harvesting connects gardeners with the timeless rhythms of nature. Annuals and perennials remind us of the seasons of life. Raised garden beds nurture precious treasures discovered at the nursery. The process is both joyful and meditative, and offers lessons that apply to life.
One of the biggest rewards comes from neighbors who watch the transformation. Japanese gardens, rose gardens, terraces filled with vegetation, wildflowers scattered in an orchard, and botanical gardens grown in pots on the patio enhance cities and suburbs. Find all of these possibilities and more with The Zen of Gardening.
A gorgeous collection for every serious gardener, hobbyist, plant lover, and anyone looking for a moment of peace during their day, The Zen of Gardening reminds us of the power of a single tree or flower to enrich our lives, and to make us happier, healthier, calmer, and more loving.
