Taught by Professor Melinda Myers | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Hobby & Leisure Courses
Visit a small-space garden and investigate tried-and-true methods for solving common planting and design problems for often stubborn areas such as deck edges, patios, and the spaces around air conditioners and gas meters. Throughout the lesson, you’ll find out some of the best choices for poorly lit areas, learn how to dodge common over- and under-watering mistakes, and more—all of it grounded in the basic science behind how light, water, and microclimates affect a garden.
