Plants for Play: A Plant Selection Guide for Children's Outdoor Environments.
Moore, Robin C.
This book presents guidelines in the design and management of children's landscapes and reveals the importance of plants as a resource for play and child development. It identifies plants by function, i.e., their sensory values, play values, food production, seasonal interest, shade quality, screens against natural barriers, wildlife enhancement, erosion control, and drought tolerance. Poisonous plants and pesticides are addressed, as is information on plant hardiness by geographic location. An index of plant names is included. Contains a 17-item bibliography. (GR)
