While interest in sustainable food practices is spreading, for urban dwellers who don't have much space or suburbanites who aren't ready to rip out the front lawn and replace it with hills of potatoes, growing any significant amount of food can seem like an impossible endeavour. But it doesn't have to be! Edible Landscaping demonstrates just how simple it can be to grow a stash of tasty vegetables, fruits and herbs while creating a beautiful green space. Whether one's outdoor oasis is a boulevard, backyard or merely a balcony, everyone can get on the fast track to creating an edible and aesthetically pleasing garden with this practical guide. Edible Landcaping includes advice on the most resilient and rewarding edible plants and detailed plans for fifteen types of urban gardens--from green roofs, community gardens and children's gardens to hanging container gardens--enabling anyone with an interest in growing their own food to design a space to perfectly match their environment and needs.
