My garden on the cover of Beautiful No-Mow Yards!

by Susan Harris on August 2, 2011

I spotted this familiar image while perusing Timber Press’s latest catalog, and proceeded to shriek and run around like an excited 8-year-old.  (Just ask the 60+ other gardenbloggers I was with in Seattle – they witnessed the scene and won’t be forgetting it soon.)  The book is by Evelyn Hadden of Minnesota with photos by Saxon Holt of California, both of whom are my co-conspirators in the Lawn Reform CoalitionHere’s more about the book, which will be available in February.

I sure wish that back yard looked as good NOW.  Horrible summer, ya know.

I’m looking into ways to cut down the lawn surface and this garden looks awesome :) Congratulations! I can very understand your shriek of delight :)

I wish someone had told *me*. I couldn’t hear that shrieking all the way down here in CA.
