'Reimagining the California Lawn'

Three horticultural experts, educators and designers offer a might tome full of turf grass alternatives.

With more than 300 color images, the second collaboration of Carol Bornstein, David Fross and Bart O’Brien offer oodles of design inspiration, detailed plant profiles of water-conserving plants from around the world and practical solutions for home gardeners.

The authors will be at the Garden on Sunday, April 17, 1 p.m., for a special presentation and book signing for “Reimagining the California Lawn” (Cachuma Press, March 2011). Refreshments will be provided. The book will be for sale at the California Garden Shop at RSABG. This event is free; no Garden admission necessary for book-signing attendees.

Bornstein, Fross and O’Brien collaborated on “California Native Plants for the Garden,” published by Cachuma Press in 2005.
