Gardening Book Project

I have decided to make a calculated march through the gardening books available to me from the Los Angeles Public Library system, in order to see what useful, fun or interesting books I might have missed along the way.

This is the first entry in what should become a regular feature.


Paths and Walkways: Simple Projects, Contemporary Designs
by Hazel White

I have lots of paths in my garden. Unfortunately, nearly all of them are at the end of their current life span. The pea gravel installed by the previous owners has mostly sunk into the soil or been raked up with the leaves. I have been looking for replacement path coverings, but nothing has struck my fancy as yet. Paths and Walkways has loads of great ideas, though, so I am hoping I will find a few possibilities within its pages.


Tips for the Lazy Gardener
by Linda Tilgner

As much as we all love gardening, sometimes it can be a real pain in the neck (and back and legs and everywhere else). There is no need to suffer, though. Here is a book of great hints on making your gardening "work" even more enjoyable than it already is.

You might want to check out Nan Sterman's "A California Gardener's Guide, Volume II." Just came out last month and is a great approach to practical gardening. Not as extensive as Sunset Western Garden book in terms of a vast collection of plants, but her discussions of how to approach sustainability in a water deprived Mediterranean climate is spot on.

Hope you like it. Nan is a garden writer in San Diego.
