With majestic trees towering overhead and lush ground covering, and contrasting flowers peering through the leaves, a woodland garden can be a dramatic scene. There are many different choices one can make to accentuate the natural surroundings, and A. T. Johnson recounts his successes and failures, offering invaluable advice for gardening with nature. "A Woodland Garden" shows all the possibilities of creating the ideal garden for the surroundings, including information on choosing flowers, shrubs, ground coverings, and trees and how to care for them (many of which care for themselves).

From the Publisher:

Valuable wisdom for creating a beautiful garden in harmony with the natural surroundings. Black-and-white photographs.

From the Back Cover:

Majestic trees tower over a lush ground covering, letting dappled light fall onto the bright flowers peering through the leaves...a woodland garden can be a dramatic scene.In this book A. T. Johnson recounts his successes and failures among the limitless choices for choosing flowers, shrubs, ground coverings, and trees, and explains how to care for all of them - although many care for themselves. And Johnson journeys beyond standard design with discussions of such special challenges as how to accomplish winter color through evergreens and how to accentuate autumn color in a glade.Gleaned from decades of planning, planting, and maintaining his own woodland garden, Johnson's insights are invaluable. This book is an eminently practical yet magnificently written primer on how to garden with, not against, nature. (51/2 X 81/4, 258 pages, b&w photos)
