The Garden Refresh: How to Give Your Yard Big Impact on a Small Budget

We rated this book:


The Garden Refresh is perfect for the beginner or seasoned gardener. Kier Holmes provides design ideas, step-by-step projects, and a host of advice to help the reader create a unique and budget-friendly outdoor space.

The author starts by looking at the garden’s foundation and encouraging gardeners to dream big, pointing out that getting an idea and overall view of your space along with the climatic conditions is essential. Of course, the most significant thing is the soil type and the amount of sun and shade throughout the day and during the changing seasons. I learned the hard way just how important this aspect is when I moved from a very sunny space to a more shady one and, as a result, had to rethink my planting and growing possibilities.

I loved the way this book was organized, with chapters providing plant suggestions for each season and different types of conditions. I found this extremely handy. Overall, this is a great resource to have on hand. Plus, it would be a great gift for gardeners, because who doesn’t want to create a great outdoor space on a budget?
