Gardening Your Front Yard
Learn how to treat your front yard like a backyard without sacrificing beauty, from choosing the right plants to building walkways and setting up a front yard patio.
In Gardening Your Front Yard, author Tara Nolan (Raised Bed Revolution) of SavvyGardening.com uses her unique combination of DIY/building savvy and gardening expertise to weave you past the main pitfalls you may encounter when trying to fit a garden or gardens between your home and the street.
This beautifully illustrated and comprehensive resource shows how to accomplish several hardscaping projects, such as laying a mowing border and building a walkway; provides inspiration to create a rain garden; and gives DIY instructions for making your own raised beds, a bench, a privacy screen, and more—all custom-designed for the rigors of front-yard gardening.
Gardening Your Front Yard is a gardening book in every sense of the word, however. Choosing the right plants is even more important when you are dealing with a small, highly visible area sometimes with less than ideal growing conditions. You will find advice on:
Planting around foundation walls
Dealing with road salt
Planting boulevards/hell strips
Security dos and don’ts
How to intermingle edibles and landscape plants
And much more
With the sage advice and step-by-step projects of this comprehensive guide, convert your front yard from a bland grasscape to a vital living space.
