No matter what climate you live in, waterwise gardens are less costly and time-consuming to maintain. More resistant to pests and disease, yet every bit as lush as their water-guzzling counterparts, they are clearly the gardens of the future.
Waterwise Gardening features detailed descriptions and advice on growing more than 100 waterwise trees, shrubs and vines with additional, climate-specific recommendations for more than 340 others. There are separate sections for perennials, annuals, and biennials, as well as a comprehensive, forward-looking discussion of lawn alternatives. Also included are tips on fighting pests and diseases with a minimum use of toxic chemicals.
