About the Author

Olivier Filippi is a French nurseryman who specializes in dry region plants. His pioneering research in Europe, California, South Africa, Chile, and Australia led him to a palette of plants that thrive for months without rain. For the last 25 years he has trialled plants and refined cultivation techniques at his nursery in Languedoc, France. His first book The Dry Gardening Handbook was published by Thames & Hudson.

Reviews

"This tour de force, published in its original 2011 French edition as Alternatives au Gazon, is an expert and inspiring manual on different ways of carpeting a garden with rewarding and distinctive waterwise groundcover. -- Alasdair Aird The Mediterranean Gardener No 84 "Well-researched and scholarly, this book is also packed with practical horticultural advice that is rooted on Filippi's extensive experience of making gardens and studying landscapes. It would be an invaluable resource for anyone struggling to create green spaces in hot, dry climates." -- John Hoyland Gardens Illustrated "An inspiring work on designing with appropriate and stylish plants to create water-conserving landscapes." -- Jeff Rosendale Pacific Horticulture "This is a generously illustrated, thought-provoking and practical book. It is a must-have for anybody interested in creating dry and low-maintenance gardens." -- Jackie Herald Garden Design Journal "What I love about this book is that it will sit on the shelf quite comfortably with Beth Chatto's The Dry Garden, and a select few books on Mediterranean-style gardening, to be referred to time and time again for inspiration. " -- Robert Brett RHS The Plantsman
