          If you like making things for your garden, you'll love concrete. Durable, beautiful, and inexpensive, it's also surprisingly simple to work with. Best of all, it weathers elegantly, softening around the edges to become more picturesque with age.

          Concrete Garden Projects offers up an inspiring array of creative projects that can be made for next to nothing. Follow the easy, step-by-step instructions to make containers of all sizes, benches and stools, ponds and birdbaths, pavers and stepping stones — and even a barbecue.

          At pennies per pound, you can't beat concrete's price. And the molds for the projects (like bowls and baking pans) can often already be found in your house.

          For elegant, individual, garden décor, don't spend a fortune, just mix and pour.

          Dry shade: the words alone are enough to strike fear in the heart of the most intrepid gardener. Even worse is the reality of dry shade — dusty, root-choked soil coupled with an all-pervasive gloom, the kind of conditions where large trees or sun-blocking structures wreak havoc on your gardening space.

          By understanding the problem, and then using techniques to take the edge off drought and poor light, you can garden successfully — even splendidly — in areas that once looked like a lost horticultural cause.

          In this book you'll discover how to prune selectively to admit more light and how to fix the soil so that it holds more water. You'll also learn about more than 130 plants that do fine with reduced light and moisture levels—long-blooming woodland gems like epimediums and hellebores, and even lush foliage plants like evergreen ferns and bear's breeches.

          People everywhere are facing the realities of restricted water availability. Yet sustainable gardens and landscapes that use less water don't have to be boring. The key to keeping your garden beautiful and waterwise is intelligent plant choice.

          This practical and inspiring guide includes all kinds of plants — from trees to succulents, from perennials to bulbs — selected for their wide adaptability and ornamental value. And whereas most books on drought-tolerant plants focus on southwestern, high desert, or Mediterranean climates, the Ogdens cover both humid and arid parts of zones 4 to 10 and offer choices for gardens from coast to coast.

          Each of the 200 entries states where the plant is best adapted, along with its light needs, soil preference, and mature size. Well over 100 related waterwise plants are also mentioned, expanding your options even further. What's more, the authors tell why each plant deserves to be in gardens and suggest creative design ideas and good companion plants.

          With their colorful leaves, sculptural shapes, and simple care, succulents are beautiful yet forgiving plants for pots. If grown in containers, these dry-climate jewels — which include but are not limited to cacti — can be brought indoors in winter and so can thrive anywhere in the world.

          In this inspiring compendium, the popular author of Designing with Succulents provides everything beginners and experienced gardeners need to know to create stunning container displays of exceptionally waterwise plants. The extensive palette includes delicate sedums, frilly echeverias, cascading senecios, edgy agaves, and fat-trunked beaucarneas, to name just a few. Easy-to-follow, expert tips explain soil mixes, overwintering, propagation, and more.

          Define your individual style as you effectively combine patterns, colors, textures, and forms. Discover how top designers interpret the dramatic options, in ideas ranging from exquisite plant-and-pot combinations to extraordinary topiaries and bonsai. Expand your repertoire with plump-leaved plants that resemble pebbles, stars, and undersea creatures. Short on space? Create vertical gardens and hanging baskets, and use daisylike rosettes in wall displays.

          Each of the more than 300 photographs offers an inspiring idea. A-to-Z descriptions cover 350 of the best succulents, plus companion plants. Whether your goal is a gorgeous potted garden for a sunny windowsill or outdoor living area — or simply making great gifts — this is a comprehensive primer for creating vibrant, living works of art.
