With Guidelines for Landscaping
by Thomas E. Manes
This comprehensive, amply illustrated book introduces the natural environment of the Texas Hill Country. Changes through the ages and in the more recent past are described. Flora and fauna are presented through descriptive text and drawings in a way that is accessible to the layman, yet detailed enough to provide useful information.
Landscaping within the Hill Country environment is an important part of the book. Included are discussions of sustainable techniques such as xeriscape, oasis gardening, and matrix planting, and also other methods that enable us to integrate better with regional ecosystem.
In wild Nature, and also in the garden, we return to our origins, and connect more fully with the web of life.
$24.95 plus tax
Sold out, and a revised and expanded edition is on the way (when I have more time to work on it!). Stay tuned here for further developments. This has been a very popular book, so sorry for the wait.
