No matter if you're gardening in a close-knit neighborhood or a sprawling estate, you want to garden efficiently, prolifically, sustainably and beautifully. You need to garden smartly and you've got to conserve your resources. This lecture focuses on all the points on your checklist. When you layer a garden, not only do you maximize space, but you can also create hard working habitats. You can fulfill a balance between what you need and what nature needs. Using Tovah Martin's own garden that she calls "Furthermore" as an example, she describes how to create layers in varied habitats including the perennial, berry and vegetable gardens. The result is visually fulfilling, low maintenance and mulch-eliminating when plants go wall-to-wall. You can expect to hear many innovative ideas beyond the usual solutions.
Presented by: Tovah Martin, horticulturalist, author and PBS television producer.
