About the author (2005)

Mary Lou Burch has been gardening for over sixty years. She has learned, through observation, education, and experimentation how to turn dirt into beautiful, natural-looking landscaped yards. Living in Iowa, Massachusetts, and South Carolina has given her experience in three very different environments. Along the way, two professional landscapers influenced her view of nature’s perverse response to every gardener’s lofty goals. Two of her four children have inherited her passion for gardening, one of whom used her artistic talent to illustrate this book. A granddaughter continues the family tradition: She has become an established landscape architect.
