In the hierarchy of pastimes that have a low-impact on the environment, we tend to think that gardening ranks pretty firmly near the top of the list. But there are some gardens that are greener than others, and we’re not just talking about the color. This week, we’re taking a look at sustainable garden and floral design, learning how scientists have been tracking climate change with the help of Thoreau, and giving plenty of inspiration for additions you might make to your own spring garden. Here’s a preview of what’s on the lineup:
- Meredith explores a stunning cabin on stilts designed by Olson Kundig in this week’s Architect Visit.
- Cynthia gets an exclusive tour of the living roof at the Academy of Sciences in San Francisco for this week’s Garden Visit.
- It’s no secret that gardening can take its toll on the knees. In this week’s 10 Easy Pieces, Janet rounds up 10 planters that take bending out of the equation.
- Stumped by stoops? Ellen tackles the subject in this week’s Hardscaping 101.
- The must-have plant for spring? We’re calling it scented geranium and Justine is giving us all the details.
