Gardening From Scratch
Gardening from Scratch "This book attempts to demystify the garden design process by explaining the principles that inform every stage, from fact-gathering to the variety of practical applications which result in a satisfying garden... In writing Gardening from Scratch, I offer you the practical and philosophical tools with which to make your own garden of personal delight. I hope you have as much fun in the process as I do. Indeed, I find garden-making becomes more joyful every time, as each new garden more closely approximates that inner garden hidden in the garden-maker's heart." -Ann Lovejoy, from the Introduction Should you enhance your new backyard with a simple vegetable garden or a trellised arbor, or both? Ann Lovejoy invites you to ruminate over what your garden will be used for, what your aesthetic tastes are, and how to implement them. Whether you're designing a tiny urban garden, a suburban space, or a rural retreat, Gardening from Scratch can show you how. Illustrated with stunning photographs by renowned garden photographer Allan Mandell, and exquisite illustrations of gardens in development by Jean Emmons. Visit us online at
