All you need to create a productive, beautiful garden from the ground up.
The Nonstop Garden gives gardeners all the information they need to create a productive, beautiful garden from the ground up. This easy-to-use guide is split into four main parts: the nuts and bolts of designing a mixed garden, the garden's main attractions (trees and shrubs), the garden's supporting cast (bulbs, annuals, edibles and vines) and finishing touches (ornamentation, containers and garden structures). The Nonstop Garden also includes ten easy design plans that can be incorporated into any garden. Gardeners can choose from a native garden, a scented garden, a gold-colored garden, a garden for wet sites, a vibrant-colored garden, a cool-colored garden, a winter garden, a shade garden and a design plan for the daunting area known as the hellstrip. By following Cohen and Benner's trusted advice and building a nonstop garden, you’ll have more creative planting options, a garden that provides year-round interest and — most importantly — a yard that requires less maintenance than a traditional perennial border. Building a better, smarter garden has never been so much fun.
