              The Coastal Garden
                

              The Coastal Garden (Paperback)

              By Gabites, Isobel

              Essential reading for gardeners and garden designers interested in native plants and wanting to reconnect with their location, using both plant and site knowledge to stimulate design and planting ideas. Landform, location, geology and life-forms are inextricably woven together in...to distinctive landscapes around New Zealand's shores. Chapter by chapter, investigate these differing environments and draws on ecological knowledge to inspire designers. Includes not only information about individual species, but also ideas about communities of plants and the conditions they are responding to. Approaches to small gardens, large gardens and restoration projects along the coast vary, so there are tips for dealing with irrigation, nutrients and pests to suit plus a quick-reference plant identification section. There is a section devoted to colour palettes and textures of the native coast, and tips for hard landscaping and utility planting. This is essential reading, not just for the enthusiastic gardener and professional landscape designer but also for all of those interested in the protection of our threatened coast.

              "This award-winning book explores the dynamic worlds of New Zealand and the submerged realm of Zealandia, their natural geological wonders, bounties and dangers. In acknowledging the achievements of New Zealand's geoscientists, from the founding of the country through to the pres...ent day, the book shows how geoscientific research can lead to a safer and more comfortable existence for all. Written in a relatively non-technical but scientifically literate style, the book contains more than 700 stunning photographs and images in colour that allow readers of all backgrounds to readily grasp the scientific concepts and issues relating to New Zealand's geological history and resulting landforms. On a different level, the book provides a fascinating insight into the changing landscape on and surrounding the islands of New Zealand through the eyes of geoscientists. Retaining the key ingredients of the first edition, and updated throughout with respect to recent scientific advances, this scond edition contains several new articles and references to the devastating [2010-11] Canterbury earthquakes and to recent volcanic eruptions. As well, there are new sections on the topical subjects of mine safety, fracking, deep-sea exploration and drilling, ocean warming, adapting to climate change, designing safer foundations, megathrust earthquakes, frontier minerals, and 'slow' landslides"-- Book Jacket.
