Gardeners are the front line of defense in our struggle to tackle the problems of global warming, loss of habitat, water shortages, and shrinking biodiversity.#xA0; In The New American Landscape, author and editor Thomas Christopher brings together the best thinkers on the topic gardening sustainably, and asks them to describe the future of the sustainable landscape. The discussion unfolds from there, and what results is a collective vision as eloquent as it is diverse. John Greenlee and Neil Diboll on the new American meadow garden. Rick Darke on balancing natives and exotics in the garden. Doug Tallamy on landscapes that welcome wildlife. Eric Toensmeier on the sustainable edible garden. David Wolfe on gardening sustainable with a changing climate. Elaine Ingham on managing soil health. David Deardorff and Kathryn Wadsworth on sustainable pest solutions. Ed Snodgrass and Linda McIntyre on green roofs in the sustainable residential landscape. Thomas Christopher on waterwise gardens. Toby Hemenway on whole system garden design. The Sustainable Site Initiative on the managing the home landscape as a sustainable site. The New American Landscape offers designers a roadmap to a beautiful garden that improves, not degrades the environment. But this is not just another design manual. It#xE2;#xAC;"s a provocative manifesto about the important role gardens play in creating a more sustainable future that no professional garden designer can afford to miss.#xA0; #xA0;
