Description Description Futureproof Your Garden is the go-to guide for everyone who wants expert, up-to-date information on how to use water in their gardens efficiently and sustainably.

It includes a photographic plant directory, packed with advice on what to plant, where; and accessible and practical design information that's relevant to outdoor spaces of all sizes, from inner city urban apartment to larger suburban plot, with a focus on small to medium garden design.

With photo essays that deconstruct step-by-step garden DIY and packed with advice on which plants are best suited to being the main feature of your garden, Futureproof Your Garden also focuses on water-efficient techniques and soil preparation - in particular wicking beds, capillary watering, ollas, deep irrigation, recycled water bottles up-ended in soil and gravity-fed irrigation using solar pumps; and adding coir fibre, peat moss, manure, biochar, water-storing crystals to your soil - so you can create a garden that is able to withstand the punishing droughts and water restrictions that have become the norm, and be ready for the deluge when it comes.
