Front Cover
Appropriate Solutions Press, 1993 - Gardening - 230 pages
If you've ever relaxed under a tree on a hot day or hurried across an open field in a biting wind, you've experienced how the features of a landscape can dramatically affect your comfort. Studies have shown that on the same day, at the same time, at only slightly different locations, landscaping can change the temperature by 20 to 25degreeF.

Energy-Efficient and Environmental Landscaping will show you how to save up to 30% on heating bills and 75% on air-conditioning, cut outdoor water costs by 80%, reduce yard maintenance for a lush lawn with less effort and no toxic chemicals, and create a yard that's inviting to wildlife and pest-free.
