Gardening Your Front Yard

Gardening Your Front Yard is an active, inspiring resource that shows you how to treat your front yard like a backyard without sacrificing beauty, from choosing the right plants to building walkways and setting up a front yard patio.​

With her unique combination of DIY/building savvy and gardening expertise, author Tara Nolan (Raised Bed Revolution) of SavvyGardening.com weaves you past the main pitfalls you may encounter when trying to fit a garden or gardens between your home and the street. This beautiful and comprehensive hardcover book shows how to accomplish several hardscaping projects, such as laying a mowing border and building a walkway; provides inspiration to create a rain garden; and gives DIY instructions for making your own raised beds, a bench, a privacy screen, and more—all custom-designed for the rigors of front-yard gardening.

Gardening Your Front Yard is a gardening book in every sense of the word, however. Choosing the right plants is even more important when you are dealing with a small, highly visible area sometimes with less than ideal growing conditions. You will find advice on planting around foundation walls, and dealing with road salt, as well as planting boulevards/hell stripsShade gardens, privacy screening, and security dos and don’ts are covered, plus how to intermingle edibles and landscape plants, dry creek beds, picket fences, and much, much more.

With the sage advice and step-by-step projects of this comprehensive guide, convert your front yard from a bland grasscape to a vital living space.
