Review

“Barbara W. Ellis transforms yards into flowering pieces of art…offering low-maintenance schemes, plant combinations, and in-depth advice on nurturing verdant landscapes.”

Home Magazine

 

Covering Ground will inspire with its wonderful possibilities for creating eye-catching color and texture in unexpected places.  Ellis has the answers to the toughest garden situations…”

East Coast Gardener

 

“If you’re making the decision to get rid of some water-thirsty lawn, here’s help.  Here are plenty of alternatives, as simple or as show as you want, for sun or shade, around pavers, along edges, fragrant or not, fast- or slow-growing, high- or low-maintenance.”

St. Petersburg Times

 

“There's life beyond lawn grass, and even beyond English ivy and pachysandra. You'll find lots of good ideas in Covering Ground.”

Chicago Tribune

 

“Barbara Ellis … elevates utilitarian ground cover plants to garden stars.”

McClatchy News Service
