The Natural Shade GardenBook - 1992 | 1st ed
Almost every gardener has to deal with shade, whether it's from trees, the house itself, or woodland areas at the property's edge. Too often these places are left untended & unplanted. But these shady spots can be as beautiful as a sunny meadow if one knows how to plant & how to use the plantings to best effect. THE NATURAL SHADE GARDEN covers all types of shade, wet or dry, partial or dense, & explains how to design & maintain gardens to make the most of shady areas. The author suggests plants for every situation, including rock, water, woodland, & container shade gardens. Over 400 photographs depict gorgeous shade gardens, large & small, in urban, suburban, & country settings. The book concludes with a source guide for hundreds of shade-tolerant plants.
