"With refreshing zeal, the author urges us to rethink our yards, helping us to see that a lawnless or a less-lawn landscape can fascinate us with its beauty, complexity, and variability." --Publishers Weekly "Hadden demonstrates how creatively rewarding it can be to forgo the fescue." --Booklist "Deeply inspirational to anyone looking to make their yards more interesting, more beautiful, and more wildlife-friendly." --Garden Rant "It has it all: A compelling rationale for ignoring the siren song of the 'perfect' lawn, inspirational stories from gardeners and designers enthusiastically embracing this timely trend, and step-by-step instructions for creating easy-care, planet-friendly patches of paradise." --Fine Gardening "Hands down one of the best garden writers I've had the pleasure of reading. I have a large library of gardening books, most with excellent content, but few rival the elegant and graceful prose of Beautiful No-Mow Yards." --Blue Planet Garden Blog "Deeply inspirational to anyone looking to make their yards more interesting, more beautiful, and more wildlife-friendly." --greatgardenspeakers.com "Whether you are a designer, home gardener, wild-life enthusiast, or environmentalist, Beautiful No-Mow Yards is a must-have addition for your gardening library." --Lawn Reform Coalition
