With detailed, strategic timelines for both short-term and long-term gardening techniques, Sustainable Gardening lets you put your best foot forward in creating an efficient, sustainable home landscape. From composting and mulching to planting trees, author Vincent Simeone covers all the eco-friendly essentials in one straightforward handbook. Simeone makes the what, how and why of sustainable gardening unmistakably clear: why we should plant for the long-term, how to make the best plant selections possible, how to make the most of your lawn (regardless of its size), the importance of fighting insects and pests, how to conserve water with proper irrigation and more. Sustainable Gardening is your complete step-by-step personal roadmap for green gardening.
