Designing and Maintaining Your Edible Landscape Naturally is a classic US bestseller. It is the authoritative text on edible landscaping, featuring a step-by-step guide to designing your own aesthetic yet productive environment using vegetables, fruits, flowers and herbs for a combination of ornamental and culinary purposes. It includes descriptions of plants for all temperate habitats; methods for improving soil; tree pruning styles that suit you and your trees; and even gourmet recipes using low-maintenance plants. There are sections on attracting beneficial insects with companion plants, and using planting to shelter your home from erosion, heat, wind and cold. Presenting such a wealth of information in an accessible and absorbing way is certainly no mean feat but Kourik manages it with aplomb, and will soon have you creating a world of both beauty and abundance.
