"Transform your garden into a self-sustaining haven for nature and wildlife. Ecological garden designer Matt Rees-Warren shares inspirational design ideas and practical projects to help you create a garden that is both beautiful today and sustainable tomorrow. The Ecological Gardener will give you the tools to create an abundant garden from the soil up - a garden that welcomes birds and bees and showcases native planting and wild flowers, with minimal carbon impact or need for fresh water. It includes practical projects, from rainwater harvesting to vermicomposting, laying a hedgerow to turning your lawn into a wildflower meadow. Matt will help you reimagine how you garden, working with nature instead of controlling it, to create a space that promotes both wildlife and beauty. Design a garden for the future - because what we do as individual gardeners matters"--
