Why sustainable gardening? Home gardeners are the stewards of thousands of square miles of valuable topsoil, oxygen-enriching plant life, and habitat for wildlife. Gardens provide not only healthy local food and natural beauty; they cool the earth and absorb carbon dioxide. But whether a garden ultimately helps or hurts the planet depends on the gardener. Choose the wrong plants, spread tons of synthetic chemicals onto lawns, or waste precious water on a careless landscape design, and your garden can do more harm than good. The authors of The New American Landscape have studied key garden techniques and practices to give homeowners a roadmap to a garden in harmony with nature — and human nature.
