Environmental consultant and author Gary Leonard will tell you that the key to successful gardening in sandy soil is understanding the soil itself. in this book he presents the sandy-soil gardener with three alternative strategies: growing plants already adapted to sandy soil, such as many natives and cacti; growing plants in structures such as pots or raised beds; or changing the composition of he soil so you can grow beautiful exotics. In fact, improving your soil is easier than you might think. Full of imaginative ideas, the book also provides sound advice on irrigation, lawns, hydroponics, fruit trees, vegetables and herbs.
