Praise for the first edition:

"The book is handsome, informative and amusingly written, and it should serve as an inspiration to those who are tired of old-fashioned lawns." -- Publishers Weekly

Liz Primeau was ahead of her time when she transformed her manicured lawn in the suburbs into a mixed garden with a profusion of flowering plants, shrubs and cacti. Ever since, she has enjoyed an eyecatching front garden that requires no chemicals and little watering.

Packed with practical tips and more than 250 beautiful photographs, this new, revised edition of Front Yard Gardens:

  • Explores the history of the lawn and our attachment to it
  • Profiles 75 front yard gardens from across North America
  • Provides step-by-step instructions to start and grow a fabulous front yard garden

    This new edition of a classic guide covers planning and design, removing the grass, enriching the soil and planting and maintaining the garden. It is divided into several types of front yard gardens, including cottage, minimalist, secret, neighborhood, downtown and natural. Primeau discusses the key elements of each type and also provides a comprehensive list of complementary plants for each.

    In this expanded edition, Primeau chronicles how her own garden and neighborhood have evolved, profiles several new and delightfully different gardens, and offers timely advice such as eco-friendly solutions for controlling bugs and weeds.

    Front Yard Gardens is an inspiring treasure-trove of ideas for home gardeners.
