A practical, accessible, and lushly photographed guide to making your garden a place of beauty and inspiration during the winter months as well as throughout the year. Why put all of our gardening effort into planting only for the magnificent but short months of summer? The dramatic stillness of the garden in winter provides its own opportunities to deepen our connection with nature. In Winterland , accomplished landscape designer Cathy Rees guides readers through the basics of creating rich and compelling all-season environments--exploring shape, scale, texture, layering, contrast, plant choices, lighting, garden structures and sculptures, and more. Design strategies are reinforced by practical advice on garden care, pruning, maintenance, and coexisting with animals and birds. Winterland gives beginning and experienced gardeners alike the tools to develop outdoor havens that will evolve over seasons and years to become true garden sanctuaries.
