Book Review - Weedless Gardening

My sister gave me this book about a week ago. It's a down and dirty introduction to the concept of top-down gardening that has gained popularity in recent years thru such means as Square-Foot Gardening and other plans like it. Only this book approaches the topic in relation to the whole yard rather than just a vegetable plot.

Geared towards the small-scale gardener, the book covers the basics of soil testing, soil improvement, how to control and eliminate existing weeds, how to create new beds without digging, and so forth.

There was no truly new concept introduced in the book, so gardeners who are experienced with the idea of improving soil thru top-dressing may be bored. But for a quick, broad introduction to the concept, it is worth picking up.
