9780881929980: High-Impact, Low-Carbon Gardening: 1001 Ways to Garden Sustainably

The environmental benefits of gardens are well-known: trees and plants capture carbon emissions, help to moderate the urban climate, promote health and well being, and help reduce energy consumption. But some garden practices are downright damaging, like using leaf blowers and other power tools, installing impermeable paving, and choosing plants that require excessive water or artificial fertilizers.

High-Impact, Low-Carbon Gardening is a one-stop reference for making a garden more green. From simple actions like composting household waste, installing a water barrel, or eliminating pesticides to more long-term investments like choosing permeable, locally sourced paving, and planting the most water-wise plants, there are hundreds of large and small choices home gardeners can make to reduce the environmental impact of designing, planting, and tending a garden.

High-Impact, Low-Carbon Gardening goes beyond organics and compost and gives serious gardeners all the information they need to make their garden truly green.

About the Author:

Alice Bowe’s work aims to demonstrate that you don’t have to compromise on design in order to create and maintain a greener garden. An artist, garden designer, and author who draws inspiration from all aspects of art, architecture, and design, Alice is passionate about gardens and firmly believes in working with nature, not against it. Her fresh approach to sustainable garden design delivers stylish gardens that use resources efficiently, saving time, money, effort, and materials.
   
A well-known writer on hard-working garden design and planting, Alice regularly contributes to The Times of London and more occasional pieces for other magazines and newspapers, including Gardens Illustrated and The Garden Design Journal. Alice also appears on television and has been on the BBC presenting team for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Alice inherited her green fingers from her grandparents, a talent she later combined with a passion for color. She studied Fine Art at Oxford University, where she has since given lectures on planting design, and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 2009.
