Summary
"A gentle, practical and inspiring guide to help you transform your yard into a diverse, healthy and sustainable landscape." -- Myrna Pearman, coauthor of NatureScape Alberta Many urban yards are essentially unproductive patches of grass, requiring constant attention for no return. Through sustainable, organic landscaping, these small or large plots of land can become part of the solution to today's environmental challenges. Eco-yards supports the vision of a healthy, abundant planet in which beautiful, richly varied urban yards contribute to restoring the natural ecosystem. This inspiring and practical, well-illustrated manual includes clear, easy-to-follow instructions for: Designing and maintaining an eco-yard Making your yard water-wise Understanding basic soil science Replacing your lawn with tree, shrub and flower beds or hardy, low-maintenance grass Growing vegetables in the eco-yard Visionary, hopeful and encouraging, Eco-yards is a must-read for anyone who wants to use environmentally sound practices when they garden, whether in a residential yard or on the balcony of a condo or high-rise apartment. If youâ€TMre sick of the backyard battle, this book will show you how to work with nature instead of fighting it, using simple steps that apply practically anywhere to turn your yard into an eco-friendly sanctuary.'A rich compost of the practical and scientific... this is a book for every gardener concerned for the health of the environment.' Roberta Rees, author of Long After Fathers "Rama is a hands-on gardener who explains -- in great detail -- everything from building soil to creating sustainable landscapes. Read about it here and then get out and practice what Rama preaches." -- Donna Balzer, BScA, horticulturist and co-host of the internationally broadcast television show Bugs & Blooms."--
