Creating the Prairie Xeriscape
by Sara Williams
A comprehensive guide to drought-resistant gardening, including a
colour-photographic reference of xeriscape plants, and an extensive
section of garden design plans.
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.
