9781604693348: The Know Maintenance Perennial Garden

“A veritable goldmine for gardeners.” —Plant Talk

We’ve all seen gorgeous perennial gardens packed with color, texture, and multi-season interest. Designed by a professional and maintained by a crew, they are aspirational bits of beauty too difficult to attempt at home. Or are they?

The Know Maintenance Perennial Garden makes a design-magazine-worthy garden achievable at home. The new, simplified approach is made up of hardy, beautiful plants grown on a 10x14 foot grid. Each of the 62 garden plans combines complementary plants that thrive together and grow as a community. They are designed to make maintenance a snap. The garden plans can be followed explicitly or adjusted to meet individual needs, unlocking rich perennial landscape designs for individualization and creativity.

From the Back Cover:

Looking for a lush, gorgeous, low-maintenance perennial garden? Roy Diblik’s Know Maintenance system shows you the way. Choose from 62 plans, each designed to fill a 10- by 14-foot space. Every plan tells you which plants you need and shows you where to place them. There are plans for sun and shade, and for an array of different moods and color schemes. The plans are like building blocks to arrange any way you want. Have limited space? Select a single plan or use part of one. For large spaces, simply repeat a plan or combine it with others.

Best of all, the Know Maintenance system will show you how to reduce garden chores to only minutes a week. You’ll learn when to plant and water, how to weed strategically, and how to relax and enjoy the garden of your dreams.
 
Noted plantsman and designer Roy Diblik has spent more than 30 years studying, growing, and enjoying plants. He is the owner of Northwind Perennial Farm, a nursery in Burlington, Wisconsin, and is best known as the plantsman behind the Lurie Garden at Millennium Park in Chicago.
