Explore ideas from across the globe about the power of plants, particularly how they can offset the effects of habitat destruction, and ultimately renew functional landscapes. Ed Snodgrass shares tangible examples from his work around the globe that relate to the local scale and discuss how we, as gardeners, can do our part. Practical solutions, thoughtful plant selection, and a focus on the long-term viability of a design all contribute to articulating the ecosystem services of plants to the homeowners, engineers, and policy makers.

Go home with a starter pack of plants to create your own functional landscape.
