3 Adams, James Landscaping with Herbs
Portland, Oregon Timber Press, Incorporated 1987 0881920738 / 9780881920734 First Edition (?) Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Book Description; Mylar and paper (Demco) protective cover. Dust jacket is intact with no nicks or tears. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are shiny, square and without wear. Although the focus is on herbs as ornamentals in a variety of garden settings, from formal to wild, this is an encyclopedia of herbs, including more than 600 species and cultivars. It offers information on cultivation, folklore and history, and culinary uses. We think of herbs as food, or as medicine, but we don't often think of them as aesthetic objects. Gardeners are taught to grow herbs for a reason--these are plants that should be harvested. The author of Landscaping with Herbs, James Adams, aims to show readers how to appreciate herbs as decorative plants. He wants to illuminate their hidden potential, their "other half." Because herbs are so integral to our lives, Adams believes they should be more integral to the garden, sharing in a gardener's landscaping fantasy as much as tulips or magnolia trees. This coffee-table book is mostly text, with a few scattered photographs, and the prose is a dense mixture of ideas. A chemist by trade, Adams has a complex mind, even going so far as to classify "the volatiles that we perceive as odors released by both flowers and foliage." One highlight: a section on the many ways to landscape a fragrant herbal garden, scattering jasmine and rosemary so that each garden room is flooded by a distinct natural perfume. ; B&W Illustrations; 11.80 X 8.50 X 1.20 inches; 223 pages

Abundant time- and money-saving tips on a host of topics range from the amusing (patrol for slugs armed with an ammonia-loaded squirt gun) to the why-didn't-I-think-of-that? variety (hose off freshly picked produce in a laundry basket outside instead of dirtying the kitchen sink). The recurring "Just Say No" feature challenges time-honored gardening traditions (Double digging? Who has time? Add compost and mulch once or twice a year instead).

19 Brookbank, George Desert Landscaping How to Start and Maintain a Healthy Landscape in the Southwest
Tucson University of Arizona Press 1992 0816512019 / 9780816512010 Softcover Good+ 
Contains small library stamps and sticker. Outherwise unmarked. ; Book Description; Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square and with minor wear. George Brookbank has distilled nearly twenty years' experience-as an extension agent in urban horticulture with the University of Arizona-into a practical book that tells how to avoid problems with desert landscaping before they occur and how to correct those that do. In the first part, "How to Start and Maintain a Desert Landscape," he provides 28 easy-to-use chapters that address concerns ranging from how to start a wildflower garden to how to cope with Texas root rot. In Part Two, "A Month-By-Month Maintenance Guide," he offers a handy almanac that tells what to do and what to watch out for each month of the year, with cross-references to the chapters in Part One. Homeowners who maintain their own landscape will find in this book ways to make the work more satisfying and productive, while those who hire landscape contractors can make sure the work is done effectively and economically. "You'll find all kinds of books on desert landscape design and materials, irrigation system and design, and landscape installation," says Brookbank. "So far as I know, however, this is the only book that tells you what to do with what you've got and how to keep it growing." CONTENTSPart 1 - How to Start and Maintain a Desert Landscape1.
