Praise

"The
volume of information here is impressive, and each action is accompanied by an explanation
of why it's important. . . . Useful whether read cover-to-cover or dipped into
for specific topics."--Booklist

fantastic resource is filled with climate-wise solutions for anyone who owns or
manages a piece of ground--even if it's just a few containers on a tiny rooftop
garden."--Claudia West, ASLA, Principal, Phyto Studio LLC

"A book on
climate-wise landscaping could not be more timely or more necessary. We are

Predictions
about future effects of climate change range from mild to dire--but we're
already seeing warmer winters, hotter summers, and more extreme storms.
Proposed solutions often seem expensive and complex and can leave us as
individuals at a loss, wondering what, if anything, can be done.

Sue
Reed and Ginny Stibolt offer a rallying cry in response--instead of wringing our
hands, let's roll up our sleeves. Based on decades of experience, this book is packed
with simple, practical steps anyone can take to beautify any landscape or
garden, while helping protect the planet and the species that call it home.
Topics include:


  • Working actively to shrink our
    carbon footprint through mindful landscaping and gardening
    Creating cleaner air and water
    Maximizing resource efficiency
    Supporting birds, butterflies,
    pollinators, and other wildlife.

As climate
change continues to intensify around the globe, the information in this second
edition of Climate-Wise Landscaping
is needed now more than ever. This book is the ideal tool for homeowners,
gardeners, and landscape professionals who want to be part of the solution to
climate change.
