Book Excerpt : A leading landscape designer shows how an ecological approach can lead to beautiful gardens that benefit the environment—and require less time and money. According to landscape designer Larry Weaner, conventional gardening is full of counter-intuitive, time-consuming, and even harmful habits. The constant tilling, weeding, irrigating, and fertilizing create perpetual disturbance in a plot’s ecology—and waste countless hours in a dubious struggle against nature. In Gardening Revolution, Weaner offers a radically new approach based on the ways plants and wildlife behave in nature. He advocates for a more fluid style, choosing plants that are adapted to the soil and climate and then capitalizing on positive developments as they occur. This lushly photographed reference is for anyone looking for a better, smarter way to garden.
