Evergreen: Living With Plants

Add to

City living isn't always conducive to green space, but the verdant backyards, rooftop gardens, and balcony oases that sprout from the pages of Evergreen (Gestalten) are potent inspirations for both the novice urban gardener and the professional horticulturist. The projects range in scale from community-owned patches to an herb garden on a fire escape, and the profiled plant lovers are cactus farmers, florists, shop owners, and activists. Through sketched floor plans and examples, Evergreen gives you practical advice about how to transform unused space—whether indoors or outdoors—into a thriving green arena.
