  • Greener View Gardening Book

    The Greener View Gardening book is available in PDF format and in softcover format. Greener View Gardening is a book on horticulture, gardening and landscaping for the owner of a landscape or houseplants who knows very little about plants but needs to take care of their landscape. It is over 400 pages long and has 975 photographs and illustrations.

    The first three chapters of the book cover how plants are named and grouped; how plants grow in different weather, climate, soil, and water conditions; and how plant processes turn sunlight, chemicals in the air, and water into a vast array of their own chemicals.

    In this section, you will learn principles like the Root to Shoot Balance, the Plant to Environment Balance, Dead Stuff Decays, and the Thrive to Sudden Death Ranges of plant health.

    After learning how plants grow and react to changes in their environment, it is time to move to chapters that cover how to buy, plant, and grow annuals, bulbs, perennials, houseplants, fruits, vegetables, lawns, shrubs, and trees.

    When you have plants growing in the landscape or house, the next chapters cover landscape maintenance, pest control, and pruning.

    A beautiful landscape is more than just plants, it includes birds, butterflies, and the sounds of water splashing. The final chapters cover landscape design, water gardens, and gardening for wildlife. Click here to go to the Greener View store.
