About this book

The hellstrip – the space between a street and a public sidewalk, also known as a tree park, boulevard, meridian, and planting strip – is finally getting the attention it deserves! Gardeners everywhere are taking advantage of the space to add curb appeal to their homes, expand the size of their gardens, and even to conserve resources.

Hellstrip Gardening by Evelyn Hadden, the author of the acclaimed Beautiful No-Mow Yards, is the first book to show you exactly how to reclaim this oft-ignored space. This comprehensive guide covers how to determine the city and home owner's association rules governing the area, choose plants that thrive in tough situations, design pathways for accessibility, and much more. Gorgeous color photographs of hellstrip gardens across the country offer inspiration and visual guidance to anyone ready to tackle this final frontier.

With Hellstrip Gardening in hand, you can finally create the paradise you want in the most unexpected of places!
