Comments: From This book delightfully conveys the pleasures of ecological landscaping. Field and Forest: A guide to Native Landscapes for Gardeners and Naturalists is for those readers who enjoy plants and want to know more about our native plant communities, how they relate to one another, and what each of us can do to help preserve and restore them. Field and Forest: A guide to Native Landscapes for Gardeners and Naturalists features an entire section, five chapters, on ecological landscaping. Jane Scott discusses how to recreate native plant communities in you own garden and how to look to nature for garden design ideas. She also includes lots of practical, down-to-earth advice on maintaining a natural garden, as well as things to watch out for when buying native plans from nurseries. Another helpful section focuses on the names and classifications of plants, to help the naturalist identify species encountered on neighborhood strolls and countryside hikes. This book will not only make such excursions more rewarding, it will help you to recreate what you see in your own backyard.
