The Natural Garden Book: Gardening in Harmony with Nature

by Chris Madsen (Author), PeterHarper (Author), JeremyLight (Author), Geoff Hamilton (Foreword)


This practical guide helps to create and restore a garden to its wider function, allowing its beauty and restorative powers to combine with high productivity, energy efficiency and wildlife conservation. In four parts, this book first presents a holistic perspective on gardening that comes from looking at the evolution and ecology of garden spaces. Part two helps the reader plan a garden, using the owner's present situation as a starting point. Part three introduces the integrated garden, and part four supplies all the practical tips and techniques needed to create it. The book also lists the best plants for a natural garden. As the organic garden movement grows and many gardeners are troubled by the hazards associated with potentially toxic chemicals, this book supplies a ready reference to rethinking garden habits. It is a companion volume to "The Natural House Book".
