Most urban and suburban yards are shaded at least part of the day, by trees, neighboring buildings, and porches or overhanging eaves, frustrating peoples' attempts to grow sunloving favorites. These 200 tips show gardeners how to create lovely shade gardens, from assessing their yard's degree of shade to designing a layout, choosing plants, and maintaining them, to compensating for shade by careful watering, mulching, and soil preparation. Trees, vines, and shrubs for shade, tips for woodland gardens with native plants, and suggestions for keeping the garden in bloom season after season are included.
