I didn't like this book but it's my own fault: I looked at the title and not the subtitle and got it thinking it was an intro to setting up permaculture at your home. This one may be hard for many people because it has become so ingrained in us to have grass growing in our yards!
But removing part of your lawn and turning some of that area into a place to grow food or other beneficial plants is a great idea. Instead of an expansive and water hogging lawn, grow native plants and perennials to reduce water usage. This will also eliminate the need for using any pesticides or herbicides.
A round design is nice and makes it easier to mow — no corners! Not only does a small pond or birdbath provide a nice visual touch in the garden, it is also a water source and habitat for birds, frogs and toads, butterflies, bees, and other pollinators.
Getting Started in Permaculture: 54 Projects for Home and Garden by Jenny Mars
This encourages a more natural landscape and makes your yard an inviting space. It is also a great teaching aid for children! Collecting rainwater from the roof of your house is not as hard as it sounds, and is a great way to obtain free water to use on plants. Rainwater contains minerals and is the best food for seedlings. This project will teach you simple plumbing skills, and the finished rain barrel will help you understand gravity flow, water levels and pressure. The rain barrel itself can be used as a thermal mass to help regulate surrounding temperature. You can also connect the rain barrels to a rain garden which can help with any overflow.
