Garden Up! Smart Vertical Gardening for Small and Large Spaces truly is an amazing book. It is filled with inspiring photographs, practical advice and innovative methods that can be applied to the vertical spaces we all have but don't quite know how to bring to life. If you are like me, you'll soak it all in and then come up with your own ideas. You'll take little bits of this and that, then experiment. Thank you, Susan and Rebecca for giving me the info that I need to create my own vertical garden. I think I'm in love with this book.
A must have book for any gardener! The photography is exquisite and gets the creative juices flowing. It also provides suggestions and easy to follow "how to's".
I am extremely pleased I purchased the book and know it will have a big impact on my garden and the joy I will have in incorporating many of their examples.
I'm just a basic gardener (not a landscaper or master anything) with some hardcore arthritis and know that I will able to use this as a go to book for continued creative ideas and easy to follow for me projects.
I hope others will buy it so they can enjoy it as much as I am.
It is very useful for the beginner gardener. I have very little sunlight in my garden with only one wall facing south that gets enough sunlight to grow some summer vegetables. I used some of the projects from this book to transform my garden this summer. The projects looked beautiful and the plants grew very well.
I enjoyed Garden Up and highly recommend it to small area gardeners.
In this book you will find the new trend of vertical gardening has `'grown up' and far beyond the usual suspects of arbors and trellises. No, you don't need a ladder and you won't have to risk your neck to create impressive vertical spaces nearly anywhere. You will however need this book!
Be ready to be amazed and delighted at the versatility you encounter when you begin to Garden up. I was more than pleased to find this book full of distinguished talent which included gardening for small spaces, vertical gardening with edibles and amazing living walls. These two authors have combined together clever designs, with easy how-to reference guides along with outstanding photography and illustrations. Included inside are excellent recommendations and plant picks that will integrate gracefully into any gardening endeavor. GET VERTICAL! GARDEN UP!
