Gardening on Pavement, Tables, and Hard Surfaces (Timber Press, 2004; $30) is more than just another container gardening book. Author George Schenk shows how you can garden literally anywhere. Schenk writes about growing plants on pavement, rocks, roofs, stumps, tables, logs, and stepping-stones -- often with just a few inches of soil. Imagine growing ground covers in walkways and on top of concrete, creating small rock gardens on tabletops, and even growing plants on your roof.
Included in this book is a plant encyclopedia that helps you match the right plant to the right location. There's also information on soil type, designs of plant beds, and tips on watering, fertilizing, and plant care.
