Synopsis

In response to demand from landscape architects and home gardeners, Natural Landscaping returns to print in an updated and expanded second edition. It is unique in its focus on plant communities; it approaches landscape design as the establishment of natural ecosystems, rather than the mere planting of specimens. Emphasizing the natural landscapes of the northeastern United States and eastern Canada, this book: * reviews landscaping principles and techniques * introduces native plant species for grasslands, savannas, forests, edge areas, & small wetlands * illustrates how to evaluate a site and plan for visual effect & maintenance * presents the issues involved in restoring bogs, ponds, and other wetlands * offers practical advice on reducing chemical use while still combatting invasive plants * addresses social, legal, design, and planting problems often encountered on residential sites * discusses natural landscaping for public parklands, civic buildings, school grounds, and corporate properties
