About the Author

Born in Crossville, Tennessee, Patricia Lanza learned to garden at her grandmother's side. Years later, the seeds sown in her childhood blossomed as she created her first "lasagna" garden. Pat built that first garden out of necessity-- she needed a source of fresh herbs for her country inn, and she needed a way to garden without the laborious digging and tilling of traditional gardening methods. In Lasagna Gardening, Pat describes that first layered garden and the more than 30 that followed it. Through her story she shares the lessons she's learned in her nearly 50 years of gardening experience. Pat now hosts a weekly call-in radio show on gardening and is the proprietor of The Potager, a home and garden center and cafe in Wurtsboro, New York.

Reviews

This intriguingly titled book‘which has nothing to do with pasta and everything to do with layering‘serves up a time-saving approach to gardening that will come as welcome news to the overworked and the horticulturally challenged. Lanza exhorts readers to build soil up, "instead of digging down," by simply layering organic materials onto a prospective garden site and close-planting directly into it. Together with generous mulching, she contends, this process eliminates some of gardening's more labor-intensive chores‘tilling, double-digging, weeding and frequent watering. After outlining her basic premise, Lanza zeroes in on the specific areas of interest, including vegetables, herbs, berries and flowers, providing an abundance of detail on a wide selection of planting materials. Although this method of creating instant raised beds is not new, Lanza has refined it into a step-by-step procedure that she conveys with simplicity and clarity, and her chatty, first-person narrative makes the text a pleasure to read. Of particular interest to fledgling gardeners, this title will also appeal to those looking for new ways to streamline the demands of their favorite pastime. (Nov.)

"Pat Lanza is a genius! It's a pleasure to find a garden writer like Pat who speaks from experience and who shares practical information in clear, understandable language. Her no-till, no-dig method will save many aching backs, and the tips and time-savers she sprinkles throughout Lasagna Gardening are sure to please gardeners of all skill levels." --Walter Chandoha, garden photographer and author of The Literary Gardener "I absolutely recommend Lasagna Gardening for every gardener." --Ralph Snodsmith, host of Garden Hotline, WOR radio network
