Step into innovative little gardens of Eden created on small terraces and city rooftops, as well as out in the suburbs and countryside. As our lifestyles become more sustainable, so does the way we interact with the outdoors. Today's gardeners aim not only to create decorative outside spaces but also to give something back. No matter what size your patch is, it's easy to create diverse and rich environments for plants and insects, or grow your own vegetables or fruits. This book presents spaces that are more imaginative, diverse, and sustainable. Learn how to grow food in the city, get creative with native plants, and design greener corners within urban areas. Future Gardens looks at fascinating examples around the world, teaching what you can do for nature while revealing what a garden can do for you.
