Using less water in your garden saves you time and money, and it's a smart investment in a more sustainable future that includes food and flowers.

The second half gets into next level solutions, from wise planting choices to raised bed design to wastewater reuse. Clear photos and step-by-step instructions make every technique accessible, and the author's deep knowledge of plants and soil guides you throughout to make water-wise decisions in your garden or small farm. An important manual for ensuring our food security in an era of climate change.
