The Right-size Flower GardenBook - 2015 | First edition
Today, the reality of a "bigger is better" garden no longer holds the same allure as a "small is beautiful" one. We're busy, we're aging, and the demands of the garden can feel overwhelming. What to do? Make smarter use of the space we have and the plants we select, says garden expert Kerry Ann Mendez. In The Right-Size Flower Garden, she shares her successful recipe for having a garden we can manage and love again...the right-size, low maintenance, drought tolerant garden. The goal is ditching 50% of the work by choosing high-value plants and making simple design changes. You'll learn which plants to switch out, which ones aren't worth the effort, and which tools and practices will take the "chore" out of gardening. The Right-Size Flower Garden is filled with beautiful full-color photos, practical tips, "plant this not that" lists, and valuable shortcuts to success.
