"The Crevice Garden: How to make the perfect home for plants from rocky places"
by Paul Spriggs and Kenton Seth
A crevice garden replicates the environmental conditions of mountain tops, deserts, coastlines, and other exposed or rocky places on earth. In this book, enthusiastic experts Kenton Seth and Paul Spriggs bring us in-depth guidance on the design, construction, and planting of crevice gardens of all kinds including those suitable for containers, small gardens, and public parks and in styles that encompass both naturalistic scenes and non-traditional installations.
Case studies demonstrate how crevice gardens provide multiple micro-habitats exceptionally well-suited to many plants. Further examples reveal ecological re-use of waste materials such as concrete, wildlife habitat creation, and for making permeable, plant-friendly alternatives to retaining walls. Finally, an alphabetic list displays 250 irresistible plants to complete this comprehensive book.
