About this book

In The Crevice Garden, enthusiastic experts Kenton Seth and Paul Spriggs, bring us in-depth guidance on the design, construction, and planting of crevice gardens of all kinds. These include those suitable for containers, small gardens and public parks and in styles that encompass both naturalistic scenes and non-traditional installations.

A crevice garden replicates the environmental conditions of mountain tops, deserts, coastlines and virtually all other exposed or rocky places on earth. These striking garden features provide perfect conditions for the plants native to these far-off places, bringing the cultivation of these precious gems within everybody's reach. In The Crevice Garden, enthusiastic experts Kenton Seth and Paul Spriggs, bring us in-depth guidance on the design, construction, and planting of crevice gardens of all kinds. These include those suitable for containers, small gardens and public parks and in styles that encompass both naturalistic scenes and non-traditional installations. A wealth of international case studies demonstrate how crevice gardens provide multiple micro-habitats that are exceptionally well-suited to growing a wide range of desirable plants that struggle in normal garden conditions. Further examples reveal their value in the ecological re-use of waste materials such as concrete, wildlife habitat creation and for making permeable, plant-friendly alternatives to retaining walls. An illustrated A-Z that recommends 250 irresistible plants completes this comprehensive book which heralds a bold new chapter in the history of crevice garden making.

Biography

Kenton J. Seth is a Colorado-based garden designer who works at home and abroad specializing in crevice gardens, drought-tolerant natives, and meadows. His flower palette is fortified with wild-hunted seed and plants grown in his small nursery. He writes for a variety of publications from local plant clubs to national magazines and international rock garden clubs. He and his partner Tori grow vegetables, ride bikes and watch sunsets over the canyon country in Fruita, Colorado.

Paul Spriggs learned how to build crevice gardens building directly from one of its innovators, Zdenek Zvolanek, of the Czech Republic. In the past decade and a half, he has built crevice gardens in public parks and private homes that range in size from small feature troughs to large installations involving many tonnes of stone. He has a passion for all wild plants, especially those of dwarf stature and collects and cultivates them at various gardens in his hometown of Victoria, BC, Canada. He is an avid plant explorer, photographer and current President of the Vancouver Island Rock and Alpine Garden Society.
