Almost every gardener has to deal with shade, whether it's from trees, the house itself, or woodland areas at the property's edge. Too often these places are left untended & unplanted. But these shady spots can be as beautiful as a sunny meadow if one knows how to plant & how to use the plantings to best effect. THE NATURAL SHADE GARDEN covers all types of shade, wet or dry, partial or dense, & explains how to design & maintain gardens to make the most of shady areas. The author suggests plants for every situation, including rock, water, woodland, & container shade gardens. Over 400 photographs depict gorgeous shade gardens, large & small, in urban, suburban, & country settings. The book concludes with a source guide for hundreds of shade-tolerant plants.Druse, Ken is the author of 'Natural Shade Garden', published 1992 under ISBN 9780517580172 and ISBN 0517580179.
