>From the cover: The beauty, resources, and natural processes of the California landscape are brought to the home garden in this testament to ecological gardening. The authors connect history, culture, region and design to help us understand how California and its human population have evolved historically and how individuals today can make a difference in the states future in the their own backyards. The authors goal is to bring the history of the Californian garden up to date with the ecological and cultural concerns of the late-20th century.
