Description

Creating Your Eco-friendly Garden shows you how to develop an environmentally friendly garden for little cost. Practically written, it is based on the author's first-hand experience as well as the wealth of knowledge she has amassed working at Grass Roots, Australia's most popular self-sufficiency magazine. The book offers advice on planning your garden, choosing plants, planting times, watering options and pest management following organic principles. It explains how to assess the soil and microclimatic effects of surrounding buildings and vegetation so that you can determine the style of garden that best suits your property. Water efficiency, biodiversity, soil conservation, use of native and biodiversity-friendly plants, organic methods, use of recycled materials and avoidance of environmental weeds are themes that feature strongly throughout the book, and will appeal to gardeners with strong environmental values.
