Great Gardening Books: Front Yard Idea Book

August 25th, 2008

Lately I have been reading a bunch of books to get ideas for my front yard. We eventually are going to need to redo our driveway (it’s a terribly graded gravel driveway that turns into a river every time it rains and all of our gravel ends up in the road) I came across Taunton’s Front Yard Idea Book: How to Create a Welcoming Entry and Expand Your Outdoor Living Space (Idea Books). What a great book. There is a chapter on driveways and it explains all the different types of driveway material. This book is a great reference and would be great to read before you do any kind of driveway/hardscape installation. There a tons of great photos (which always make a great book better in my opinion). This book is a definite read if you’re looking for front yard ideas!

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!


This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.

This year I have volunteer petunias growing up throughout my flowerbeds. I don't know if they're coming from my compost...
