The Northwest Green Home Primer by Kathleen O'Brien, 2008

Reviewed by: Brian Thompson
Review date: 2009-10-01

"The Northwest Green Home Primer" is a helpful book for planning your garden. While the emphasis is on the home, a chapter entitled "Site Choices" has good advice for the surrounding landscaping, especially how and where to plant trees, and briefly addresses other green practices such as rain gardens to maximize the use of runoff.

Excerpted from the Fall 2009 Arboretum Bulletin.
