From the Author:

Contents

Foreword by Lauren Springer Ogden, author of The Undaunted Garden and Plant-Driven Design

Part 1: Inspirations showcases 12 inspiring curbside gardens from around the United States.

Part 2: Situations tackles challenges posed by street trees, too much or too little water, poor or contaminated soil, restrictive regulations, foot and vehicle traffic, desirable and undesirable wildlife, piled snow and road salt, utility lines and unsightly equipment, and more.

Part 3: Creation offers nature-friendly solutions for designing, building, and managing a curbside garden.

Part 4: Curbside-Worthy Plants profiles over 100 plants that can help transform your hellstrip to a curbside paradise, highlighting plants with showy flowers, plants with showy foliage, plants with edible or medicinal uses, and plants with four-season structure.

From the Back Cover:

In this fresh and enchanting book, Evelyn Hadden invites you to use your gardening power to convert your “hellstrip”—the space between the street and the sidewalk—into a rewarding garden that generates smiles and celebrates nature. And you don’t need to stop there: if you have some unused ground outside the fence, down the steps, or beside the driveway, you can turn it into a pocket garden bursting with beauty and character.
 
You’ll gain inspiration from twelve dazzling curbside gardens from coast to coast, discover what you need to know before jumping in, learn how to actually create your hellstrip garden, and become acquainted with 108 plants especially suited to curbside conditions.
 
With just one small curbside garden, you can make your yard and neighborhood more fragrant, more lively, more peaceful, more interesting, more earth friendly, and more beautiful.
