The No-Work Garden provides you, whether a novice or experienced gardener, with a wealth of labour-saving tips for every aspect of the garden as well as no-nonsense advise on choosing what you want and how hard you are prepared to work for it.

With practical advice on issues such as making mowing easier and why you don't need to spend your life digging, and common-sense tips on the benefits of choosing plants that thrive locally, welcoming wildlife and trusting in nature to aid the upkeep of your garden, this is the invaluable must-have for gardeners who want to see spectacular results with minimum effort.
