Description

Over the last ten years 'xeriscape' has become a watchword for water-conscious gardeners. Extensively revised and updated, Creating the Prairie Xeriscape moves on from the basics to give today's gardeners a complete guide to planning, designing and maintaining their own xeriscape gardens. Full-colour throughout, Creating the Prairie Xeriscape contains a reference section of ideal plants for the xeriscape garden. These descriptions, with advice on culturing and best growing conditions, enable gardeners to select a range of plants for year-round landscape value. You'll also find chapters on native plants and vegetables for the xeriscape, as well as extensive tables as a quick reference guide for planting choices.
