About this book

Modern life, with its ever-growing demands, leaves little time for the pleasures of gardening. But sometimes gardening itself is the culprit: elaborate, traditional perennial borders; water-hungry or disease-prone plants; needy lawns; and high-maintenance plants that require staking or clipping all suck up precious hours. Simply put, we need to start gardening in a whole new way.

In this inspiring book, Val Easton shows exactly how to have a low-maintenance garden that doesn't sacrifice style. You won't have to give up your favorite plants or settle for expanses of ground cover.garden? "The New Low-Maintenance Garden" doesn't just tell you how to garden in a whole new way - it shows you, through profiles and beautiful photographs of real gardens that embody low-maintenance techniques.
