Landscaping for Privacy by Marty Wingate, 2011

Reviewed by: Brian Thompson
Review date: 2012-10-01

book"Landscaping for Privacy" by Marty Wingate is very practical and addresses annoying issues like siting the recycle bins, and how to embrace wildlife or pets without letting them run amok, while empowering you to create a space that is very distinctly your own. Relatively few gardening books address fences and hedges in any depth, but for Wingate "screening hedges become more than shrubs planted in a line; they create a green, living wall, incorporating the design elements of sequence and repetition to pull together the landscape."

Excerpted from the Fall 2012 Arboretum Bulletin.
