In these new sections, gardening information is organized and arranged differently with the perspective of creating organic landscapes in harmony with nature. Hopefully, I'll explain the principles and techniques involved sufficiently for you to be able to use them as guides throughout your gardening life. The practices involved are divided into three areas: practices with involvement both above and below ground, below ground practices and what a gardener should do above ground to promote a garden working with nature. Please remember, to be successful you need not do everything all at once, or everything at all. When you accomplish any positive improvement in your landscape, you are on the road to success and your landscape will reflect the change. The degree of success is up to you.
