The California Native Landscape.


Rubin, Greg and Lucy Warren.

Cl. 2013

Book ID: 93549

Water shortages and water rationing are commonplace throughout California, rendering expanses of lawn and thirsty, nonnative plants unsustainable. Unfortunately, these remain the most popular choices for homeowners for two main reasons: the misconception that native plants are more difficult and the false assumption that exotic plants are more beautiful than their native counterparts. The California Native Landscape addresses both concerns by teaching homeowners how to succeed with natives and showing them how lush, colorful, and thriving their landscape can be. The authors stress the importance of smart garden design and combining the right plants to promote the natural symbiosis that occurs within plant communities. This new book also has cutting-edge information on the crucial role that natives play in creating fire-resistant landscapes, refuting the myth that natives are more fire-prone than nonnatives.
