Book cover image - The Naturally Beautiful Garden
More popular than ever, gardening is going green with the rise in interest in environmentally friendly gardening.

Gardening is trending, and today's gardeners are embracing ecologically sound principles – conserving water; avoiding invasives; reducing chemicals; supporting wildlife; and reviving time-tested, organic practices. Featuring sites across a variety of climates and conditions, this book includes private and public gardens created with style and elegance where the goal is to work with, rather than against, nature – opting for plants suited to the site, using organic methods, supporting birds and pollinators, etc.

Interspersed throughout are stand-alone essays focused on key topics: meadows and prairie gardens; the importance of trees; structure and hardscaping; ornamental grasses; overcoming site challenges (xeriscaping, rain gardens, excess shade, less than ideal soils).

With over thirty-five gardens from across the globe – America, Britain, Europe, Morocco, New Zealand, Thailand, Japan, the Caribbean – alongside photographs by leading garden photographers, including Clive Nichols, Marianne Majerus, Richard Bloom, Andrea Jones, and Alessio Mei, the book showcases the beauty and visual impact produced by eco-friendly garden principles.
