Bennett is the editor. There are three chapters to the book. The chapter "Thinking Low" is written by Helen Molitor; Ken McMullen writes "Please Step on the Grass," which is the Lawn Care section, and Eva Hoepfner is the author of "Wildflower Meadows." The chapters are informative easy reading, but not an in-depth discussion. Chapter Four is most useful containing an encyclopedia of Ground Covers with notes on each species by gardeners in Zones 2, 4, 5, 6 and 8. The different gardeners' perspectives based on his or her own climate is extremely helpful. A practical, informative reference book.
