  • I saw this book on Pinterest and checked it out from the library. I’ve read it over and over! I can’t wait for the weather to get a little warmer to start my lasagna beds. I love to garden and recently moved from 2 acres to a posted stamp back yard. This book has open so many ways to improve my little yard! A few days ago I purchased this book because it is a wonderful gardening book for every gardener to have as a reference.
  • i started a small area last year. ok, i missed watering once in while. my plants grew huge even with missed watering! i’m convinced this is the way to garden. oh, this style does not require digging. you build up the soil above what you have!
  • I now live on a small lot and was frustrated about gardening until I read and used Lasagna Gardening. My herbs and veggies are huge and better than ever. I also am planning the rest of my landscaping using this method. Thank you so very much.
  • The book came through the mail quickly and it was in excellent condition. This little book was packed with loads of ideas to do a lasagna garden. It had lots of insets of suggestions and pictures. It was extremely helpful in my pursuit of a lasagna garden.
  • The book arrived two days after I placed my order and I must be the second person who opened it.My book is in better condition than a lot of new books and I could not be more pleased with the way my order was handled. I would definitely order again from this dealer.
  • This book has received a lot of mixed reviews, so I just wanted to say: I liked it.
    It’s true that it’s not perfect. I find that few gardening books are universally ideal. This one is oriented towards sunny locations, and it has the flaw that many small-space gardening books have–the small-space seems to get bigger and bigger until it seems like we’re talking about a fair-sized garden. Also, there are tons of personal details, really to excess. And one hears a great deal about the writer’s current garden/shop/restaurant, much more than is interesting. Another reviewer suggested that perhaps it’d be more interesting if there were pictures of this place, and I agree, that might be a good idea.
    Nevertheless, there were some great tips in here. Lanza takes the approach that you can be very ambitious even if you have a small garden, and that suits me very well. So she points out, for example, that climbing plants and vines are a great way to use every bit of space for spectacular effect. She also has lots of little suggestions; I found especially useful the idea of storing tools etc in tupperware/sweater boxes, tucked away. Also, her description of layering compost etc in the containers was useful to me.
    It’s true that little in this book is original, but then, originality is not usually the strength of gardening books. Somebody somewhere almost always knows the same techniques. It’s a matter of presenting things in such a way that they are helpful to the reader.
    I guess I would recommend trying to get this book from the library first–as I would with most gardening books. It has some great qualities, but it’s not perfect, and it’s worth making sure that it’s useful to you personally before buying it.
