Designing Borders for Sun and Shade

by Bob Hyland, Steve Buchanan

Easier-to-maintain, dynamic borders of beautiful shrubs, perennials, ornamental grasses, bulbs, and annuals are in—and this new 10-step gardener-friendly guide from Brooklyn’s famed Botanic Garden simplifies the art. Written by a master landscape designer and plantsman, it shows how to create dramatic and dazzling borders that span the four seasons, flourish in sun and shade, and are appropriate for different regions and climates. An 80-page encyclopedia showcases and provides information on 120 plants, from background yews and soft flowering tobaccos to see-through meadow rues, sprawling verbenas and rambling roses. Plus, there’s a hands-on plan for installing a new border.
