Energy-Wise Landscape Design is for those of you who are serious about greening up your grounds. While this is an attractive book, it is not stuffed with pretty fluffy images. Author Sue Reed has created a serious read where, among other things, you will learn about situating your house for the most efficient cooling and heating, designing ecosystems, water efficiency, solar, wind, water, and geothermal energy, and even how to plant a thriving wildflower meadow.”
