Horticultural expert Vincent Simeone helps you plan your green garden in this practical, holistic guide. With detailed, strategic timelines for both short-term and long-term gardening techniques, Grow More with Less lets you put your best foot forward in creating an efficient, sustainable home landscape. From composting and mulching to planting trees, author Vincent Simeone covers all the eco-friendly essentials in one straightforward handbook. Simeone makes the what, how, and why of sustainable gardening unmistakably clear: why we should plant for the long-term, how to make the best plant selections possible, how to manage invasive species, how to make the most of your lawn (regardless of its size), the importance of IPM (integrated pest management) in fighting insects and pests, how to conserve water with proper irrigation, installing rain barrels and cisterns, and more. Even when the solution is to do nothing—for instance, leaving some parts of a lawn un-mowed in order to save time and money while attracting local wildlife—Grow More with Less enables you to confidently make the call. With effective, time-proven recommendations like these, field-tested in a large botanical garden and adapted for home use by Vincent Simeone, Grow More with Less is your complete step-by-step personal roadmap for green gardening.

A large portion of the energy for which the typical U.S. family pays is wasted, such as through poorly insulated windows & doors. By using a few inexpensive energy-efficient measures, you can reduce your energy bills by 10% to 50%, & at the same time, help reduce air pollution. The key is a whole-house energy efficiency plan. View your home as an energy system with interdependent parts. You may have a top-of-the-line, energy-efficient furnace, but if the ducts leak & are un-insulated, & your walls, attic, windows, & doors are un-insulated, your energy bills will remain high. Covers: insulation & weatherization; heating & cooling; water heating; windows; landscaping; lighting; appliances. Illustrations.

This concise introduction to environmental science (a shorter alternative to Miller's Living in the Environment) uses basic and easily understandable scientific laws, principles, and concepts to help students understand environmental and resource problems and the possible solutions to these problems. It includes many full-color illustrations and photographs and a writing style that is clear, personal, and lively. Extensive reviewing by hundreds of experts and Miller's careful research covering more than 20,000 sources ensure the text's accuracy and currency. During the early 1970s, Miller's texts helped shape and define the environmental science course. Today, they are best sellers used by thousands of students across the country. This new edition is a major revision--the most extensive since the first edition was published. Each chapter is thoroughly revised and some detail has been added. The book's 460 illustrations are designed to present complex ideas in understandable ways and to relate learning to the real world.
