Rain Gardens: Managing Water Sustainably in the Garden and Designed Landscape

Timber Press, 2007 - 188 páginas
Rain gardens encompass all possible elements that can be used to capture, channel, divert and make the most of the rain and snow that fall on a property. Using the innovative and attractive approaches described here, it is possible to enhance outdoor spaces and minimize the damaging effects of drought, stormwater runoff, and other environmental challenges. Nigel Dunnett & Andy Clayden have created a comprehensive guide to water management techniques for the garden and built environment. Filled with practical, manageable solutions for small and large-scale implementations and utilizing authoritative research with state-of-the-art case studies from all over the world, Rain Gardens is the first book on sustainable water management schemes suitable for students and professionals.

Not at all what I was expecting. I was looking for a book that discussed designing and building a rain garden. What I discovered was a book on managing rain water and drainage in creative ways. Interesting. Provided food for thought and, perhaps, some ideas for my yard. Leer comentario completo

This book was excellent in explaining why people use water gardens and the many variations. Having already understood "how", I wanted to know why and this book gave a very thorough coverage of the subject.
