Ornamental grasses provide glorious visual impact and a dynamic sense of movement. They are easy to care for, provide excellent wildlife habitats, and are sustainable. Neil Lucas captures all this in a practical, accessible, and beautifully illustrated book that appeals to gardeners who want a contemporary garden without too much effort.
"Designing with Grasses" looks at how grasses perform in the wild to help readers choose the right plants for their garden. A section is dedicated to recreating the grasslands found in prairies, steppes, and meadows in a backyard setting. Additional design chapters challenge conventional divisions about planted and non-planted areas of the garden. Putting the right plant in the right place is crucial to the creation of sustainable plantings, and Lucas picks for grasses for particular situations are especially helpful. Environment-friendly options for green roofs, erosion control and habitat restoration along with alternatives to lawn grasses are also included.

Featuring over 250 stunning photographs by Michael Stavaridis of Mario Nievera's diverse gardens and landscapes As a child, Mario Nievera would fantasize about perfect, unfolding landscapes and luscious, animated gardens. Now, he creates them: Nievera Williams Design, one of the top landscape architectural firms in the country, plans and develops diverse projects for residential estates, community parks, and corporate and institutional properties, both nationally and abroad. For Mario, it is imperative that a house be closely connected to its surroundings: with every project, whether bucolic and classical, elegant and refined, or dramatic and fanciful, he endeavors to achieve a seamless integration between interior and exterior spaces. Using a colorful palette of unique and varied vegetation, from vibrant flower beds to elegant coconut palms and rustic ivy-covered trellises to framing Ficus trees, Mario uses nature as a tool for design. Painting with plant-life in climates as diverse as tropical Floridian coasts and as temperamental as windy New York rooftops, Forever Green presents the landscape architect's innovative idylls from all of our dreams. It is sure to make you green with envy.

This book motivates gardeners to adopt a completely different mindset: instead of growing foreign plants and killing perceived pests, gardeners can benefit from planting indigenous vegetation with the object of actually attracting insects and other garden wildlife. It illustrates how easy it is to work with nature instead of against it. Not just another gardening book, it encourages gardeners to help preserve and restore our fast-disappearing natural heritage. In this way they can contribute to conservation right on their own doorsteps, while deriving great pleasure in the process. Virtually every aspect of environmentally-friendly gardening is covered, making it a complete “how to” guide and debunking some long-held myths. Winner of a University of KwaZulu-Natal book prize, the first edition was out of print for several years after all 15 000 copies had been sold. This is the Western Edition, for the western half of South Africa that the original didn’t pertain to. The book is lighthearted and entertaining whilst avoiding the technical terms, thus making it an easy read. The book is enhanced by delightful humorous drawings that emphasise points made in the text. A must for all nature-loving gardeners, the large amount of information is almost encyclopedic and will also be more than useful to conservationists and anyone with an interest in the natural sciences.
