Description Description Shawna Coronado, one of America’s most creative gardeners, gives you her library of clever gardening tricks in 101 Organic Gardening Hacks.

If you ask garden author Shawna Coronado what a hack is, she might just wave her hand toward her own back yard. She could be pointing at the garden bench she created from leftover wood posts and a few cinder blocks, or the rows of wine bottles buried soldier-style along a winding pathway, or even the garden soil itself, which is blended by hand from an organic soil recipe she devised.

In 101 Organic Garden Hacks you’ll find the top tips, tricks, and solutions Shawna has dreamed up in her career as one of America’s most creative gardeners. Some are practical timesavers; others offer clever ways to upcycle everyday items in your garden.

One characteristic every hack shares is that they are completely organic and unfailingly environmentally friendly. Divided into a dozen different categories for easy reference, each hack is accompanied by a clear photo that shows you exactly how to complete it. With these hacks, discover how easy it is to:
  • Fertilize your soil the all-natural way with tips on using manure, mulch, epsom salt, coffee grounds, and different types of compost made from kitchen and garden waste.
  • Maintain your garden with eco-friendly tricks for repelling pests and conserving water, including making earwig traps and harvesting rain water.
  • Attract pollinators with plant selections and DIY feeders and homes.
  • Transform your outdoor space into an elegant retreat with garden decor from recycled items like an old chandelier.
  • And much more!

If you are looking for resourceful ways to improve your garden and promote green living values right at home, you'll love paging through this fascinating, eye-catching book.
