Descriptions du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Looking for an alternative to a traditional lawn? Covering Ground explores hundreds of wonderful possibilities. Flowering plants, herbs, mosses, ground-hugging shrubs, and heathers, planted singly or in creative combinations, can add interest, elegance, and drama to otherwise dull and ordinary areas. And hardscape options, such as bluestone, crushed gravel, brick, or shredded bark mulch, can create pathways and define borders. You'll be inspired by these low-maintenance, creative ideas, and Barbara Ellis includes all of the information you need to successfully select, plant, and care for the ground covers that you choose.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Garden inspiration! 3 juin 2013
Par Francisca
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I saw this book at a plant market before I ordered it on Amazon (the one I saw was in French and therefore a lot more expensive). We have a very big garden with loads of grass and were looking into ground covers to diminish the maintenance of the garden, something our gardener doesn't agree with and won't help us with either! This book gave us invaluable information, although it is an American book and therefore not really related to our situation here in France. But well, shade, sun, fertile or infertile soils are a bit the same all over the world. Armed with this book we will be able to show our next gardener exactly what we mean and maybe do it ourselves in smaller bits of the garden. For the big part we need professional help although I am sure this book will be very helpful.

The only thing that I didn't like was the repetitions. This book could have been written in a lot less pages but well, the information is good though!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Covering Ground 14 décembre 2007
Par DJkat - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book is a wonderful picture book full of information on any plant or plant combination you might use to cover an area of your garden. From borders to large expanse open areas. I was happy to find that it was not just the standard 'ground cover' plants that were discussed. Instead, it covered beautiful plant combinations that could be used to fill-in bare spots and trouble spots in the garden. It's the perfect book for garden planning and dreaming during the dreary winter.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The best landscaping book I've read 21 septembre 2008
Par Garden Grandma - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is hands-down the most useful landscaping book I've ever read. After finding it at the library, I wanted my own copy. I have a large ravine next to my house that I'm slowly trying to convert from a weed-filled ditch to a vision of beauty and this book is my guide. It includes a vast catalog of groundcovers complete with needs for sun, soil type, climate zone, and photos. It goes beyond the usual assortment, including shrubs, grasses, and combination of hardscape and groundcovers. There is also a lot of information on native plants and invasive ones (many of which can be useful in the right place!) I salute Barbara Ellis for this masterful work. If I could only have one gardening book, this would be it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book on groundcovers 17 octobre 2009
Par T. Wilson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I poured through this book many times front to back and refer to it often. I love Barbara's easy writing style and the book is arranged nicely. I've gardened for years and am getting to the point where I need to add lower maintenance plants. With the detailed plant descriptions there is no mistake of what a plant will do for you so choosing is a much easier task. I have a rather large collection of plant books and this one ranks with my favorites.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Informative, helpful 10 juin 2008
Par Bette - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Nice variety of plants discussed, most easy to find at local nurseries, Lowes, Home Depot. Excellent photos. Plants are well-grouped, ie dry shade, wet soil, shrubs for sun and shade, acid soil, alkaline soil, etc. Discusses how ground covers work, but provides little info on invasives. Overall creativity factor is low to medium (nothing too new or innovative is presented). Best used as a sourcebook, it will get you out to the stores in search of what fits your landscape.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 More Than Just Ground Covers 25 mars 2010
Par George Roark - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
At first glance I was thinking that this book was about ground covers, but it truly is about covering ground in creative and beautiful ways with many different types of plants. Well written, practical and informative!
