The Humane Gardener : Nurturing a Backyard Habitat for Wildlife


 In her well-written and beautifully-produced small book, Lawson makes a cogent case for the simple act of adding a few wildlife friendly features to your garden.  Whether you are inspired to attract more pollinators and to avoid killing "good" bugs with "bad" bugs, or have a larger project in mind to get rid of your turfgrass, you will get lots of practical and easy-to-implement ideas for creating welcoming sanctuary while allowing humans to closely appreciate and coexist with nature. Includes a useful index of native plants and links to online information as well as interviews with gardeners across the country explaining their projects, with plenty of helpful photographs. 

The humane gardener : nurturing a backyard habitat for wildlifeBy Lawson, Nancy, 1970- author.

"In this eloquent plea for compassion and respect for all species, journalist and gardener Nancy Lawson describes why and how to welcome wildlife to our backyards. Through engaging anecdotes and inspired advice, profiles of home gardeners throughout the country, and interviews with scientists and horticulturalists, Lawson applies the broader lessons of ecology to our own outdoor spaces."
