Book Overview

Many gardeners today want a home landscape that nourishes and fosters wildlife. But they also want beauty, a space for the kids to play, privacy, and maybe even a vegetable patch. Sure, it's a tall order, but The Living Landscape shows how to do it. By combining the insights of two outstanding authors, it offers a model that anyone can follow. Inspired by its examples, you'll learn the strategies for making and maintaining a diverse, layered landscape--one that offers beauty on many levels, provides outdoor rooms and turf areas for children and pets, incorporates fragrance and edible plants, and provides cover, shelter, and sustenance for wildlife. Richly illustrated with superb photographs and informed by both a keen eye for design and an understanding of how healthy ecologies work, The Living Landscape will enable you to create a garden that is full of life and that fulfills both human needs and the needs of wildlife communities.

   Inspirational
For 35 years, I have been a landscape architect and garden designer in the US. This book should not only change the way we think about designing our gardens, but also how we think about our role in forming them. I particularly like chapter 4, The Art of Observation. I recommend this book to all my future garden design students.

   Belongs in every native plant landscaper's library
Highly recommended for home landscapers who want to include native plants in their yards. This book and Dr. Tallamy's other book, Bringing Nature Home, explain in clear detail why we should all do this. By introducing a book like this, which includes both aesthetics and scientific knowledge, the authors have done a great service to the environment and concerned landscapers.

   Do the right thing: READ, STUDY AND PLANT for wildlife.
An excellent book to help understand the benefits of creating a native garden of the excellent. How and why the layers of plants work to promote and bring back species in areas they had left. I love this book ''. But do better than just plant the book, love the book. Give it as a gift to homeowners in the United States. There are guidelines for different planting areas :

   Very informative with wonderful description and photos.
I have been slowly trying to transform my property into a native wild scape little by little for years. I particularly like the selected plant tables in the books that are broken by region. I see this book as a reference for years to come when the planning changes from native and lawn to invasive and benefiting wildlife.

   My pandemic bible
I often read or browse it and has helped me understand what kind of relationship my small yard can have to the general ecosystem for the last year. It has made me appreciate the wonder of the small patch of earth I am lucky enough to steward, and it has given me good challenges to meet for gardening for beauty and ecosystem value. Heartily recommended.

   charts unusable on kindle
The books looks like the content is great, but the charts on kindle are unusable. Some of the icons are color-coded so that can not be distinguished on a white Kindle paper at all. Since the charts are a major part of the book and look like they would be very informative and useful, I am trying to return the kindle version. This 1 star rating is only for the kindle version, not for the content, which I haven t read. As an alternative, Amazonthe publisher could offer a web page link to the charts, as I have seen in other book types, which would make the kindle version functional.
