Transforming outdoor space is one of the hottest home trends today. Landscaping expands living space square footage, makes a property more usable, and keeps homeowners healthier whether they grow vegetables or swim laps. It also makes a neighborhood more aesthetically attractive and community minded. The Garden Bible can help homeowners understand the challenges of their outdoor space and what they need to do to create their garden and make it thrive. Photographed in rich full-color, this book will teach you how to develop a master plan for your yard. Many garden books explain how to grow specific flowers, care for shrubs, trees and lawn, and construct fences and hardscape. None take a homeowner from the beginning of the process: how to ask a professional the right questions, how to develop a budget, and how to identify and troubleshoot the challenges of their yard—drainage, erosion, privacy, noise, wind, too much or too little sun or shade. The Garden Bible will help you plan and problem solve so that your garden will grow, evolve, and be sustainable for years to come. Few books delve into landscaping style and cost-saving solutions as this insightful, beautifully illustrated book does. Barbara Ballinger, a well-known real estate, design and garden writer for more than four decades, and Michael Glassman, an award-winning landscape designer for over 35 years and author of seven books on landscape design and gardening, guide you through the process of designing your perfect garden. Showcasing the stories of how almost 30 home owners designed, budgeted and built their landscapes—The Garden Bible shows you that not only is a great garden beautiful to look at, but it’s also great for the soul.

Take a walk down memory lane with this 1950s decorating classic, re-released for a whole new generation The year is 1956. America is a mere decade past World War II. Richard Nixon is next in command to President Dwight Eisenhower, the Dow Jones soars above 500, and Norma Jean Mortenson legally changes her name to Marilyn Monroe. Two words described the decade, as John Updike wrote in the short story “When Everyone Was Pregnant”: Fear and gratitude. And during this boom period, grateful young families thrilled to find themselves homeowners after the uncertainty of the Great Depression followed by a second Great War. Those empty rooms needed filling in order to make the house a home, and homeowners turned to the iconic Better Homes and Gardens brand. Better Homes and Gardens Decorating Book, the first edition of a title that would spawn ten editions over the years, became the new home bible for injecting class, style (and the occasional misguided cowboy wallpaper) into American homes. While exploring numerous styles, the main theme of the book is the on-trend mid-century modern sensibility, a style as appropriate today as it was six decades ago when the book was initially released. Filled with hundreds of full-color period photos, dozens of adorable illustrations, and decorating tips and tricks that are both helpful and nostalgic, the book remains a fun classic. With this welcome hardcover release, reproduced exactly as it looked and read in the 1950s, everything old is new again.

We can’t avoid insects. They scurry past us in the kitchen, pop up in our gardens, or are presented to us in jars by inquisitive children. Despite encountering them on a daily basis, most people don’t know an aphid from an antlion, and identifying an insect using field guides or internet searches can be daunting. Miniature Lives provides a range of simple strategies that people can use to identify and learn more about the insects in their homes and gardens. Featuring a step-by-step, illustrated identification key and detailed illustrations and colour photographs, the book guides the reader through the basics of entomology (the study of insects). Simple explanations, amusing analogies and quirky facts describe where insects live, how they grow and protect themselves, the clues they leave behind and their status as friend or foe in a way that is both interesting and easy to understand. Gardeners, nature lovers, students, teachers, and parents and grandparents of bug-crazed kids will love this comprehensive guide to the marvellous diversity of insects that surrounds us and the miniature lives they lead.
