Extensive revised and expanded second edition. It’s fun and easy to create a “backyard ecosystem” by assembling communities of plants that work cooperatively and perform a variety of functions, including:

  • Building and maintaining soil fertility and structure
  • Catching and conserving water in the landscape
  • Providing habitat for beneficial insects, birds and animals
  • Growing an edible “forest” that yields seasonal fruits, nuts, and other foods
  • Paperback, 328 pages

Features a new chapter on urban permaculture, designed especially for people in cities and suburbs who have very limited growing space. Best of all, once established, an ecological garden will reduce or eliminate most of the backbreaking work that’s needed to maintain the typical lawn and garden. By Toby Hemenway.
