Shows the reader how to create a garden using plants and surfaces that tend to look after themselves with the minimum of care, as well as how to choose plants that will thrive without having to be encouraged or controlled. The author argues that a low-maintenance garden can be useful not only for those with little spare time but also for elderly or disabled gardeners who do not have the ability to cope with the routine maintenance of a garden. Other titles in this series include "Ivies" and "Gardening for the Flower Arranger". Minor shelf wear.
