Climate-Wise Landscaping

Climate-Wise Landscaping by Sue Reed and Ginny Stibolt

By Sue Reed and Ginny Stibolt

This book answers the question: What can we do, right now, in our own landscapes, to help solve and respond to climate change?

Predictions about future effects of climate change can range from mild to dire – but we're already seeing warmer winters, hotter summers, and more extreme storms. Proposed solutions often seem expensive and complex, and can leave us as individuals at a loss, wondering what, if anything, can be done.

Authors Sue Reed and Ginny Stibolt offer a rallying cry in response – instead of wringing our hands, they say let's roll up our sleeves. Based on decades of real-life experience, this book is packed with simple, practical steps anyone can take to help lessen global warming while beautifying any landscape and garden.

This lushly illustrated, full-color book is a tool for homeowners, gardeners, and landscape professionals who want to be part of the solution to climate change. Topics include:

  • Saving energy, money, and time
  • Shrinking our carbon footprint
  • Creating cleaner air and water
  • Increasing physical comfort during hotter seasons
  • Supporting birds, butterflies, pollinators, and other wildlife

“Sue Reed has compiled an extremely useful and readable book on ways in which we can design and manage landscapes with the goal of conserving—and even producing—energy. I have not seen another book which brings together so many useful concepts and practical information. This comprehensive book, written in a direct, non-jargonistic manner, will be of tremendous value to everyone from individual homeowners to students of environmental design.”
