Reflecting Nature: Garden Designs for Wild Landscapes


The current horticultural trend of "naturalistic gardening" involves mimicking natural and wild areas and paying more attention to native plants. Two new books, offering two different approaches, explore this technique. In Reflecting Nature, the Malitzes (father and son) describe natural areas and discuss how these landscapes can be duplicated in the home garden. Most of their examples come from state parks in New England and Colorado, where they have photographed beautiful samples of nature's artwork, from waterfalls and other water features to meadows and forests. Although the descriptive prose is a pleasure to read and will be enjoyed by nature lovers, gardeners may be dissatisfied by the lack of practical advice and garden illustrations. Unfortunately, many of the examples here would be quite difficult to accomplish in many gardening situations. For larger collections.
