JENNIFER BEAVER is a freelance writer and Master Gardener who discovered a passion for plants after witnessing their transformative power in neighborhoods. She helped found a group that successfully saves urban landscape trees, thereby reducing pollution and preserving property values. Captivated by the delights of container gardening, she is always on the prowl for new plant combinations to fill re-purposed containers.
DON WILLIAMSON, the author or coauthor of more than a dozen popular gardening guides, has a degree in horticultural technology and professional certificates in turf management. He has extensive experience designing and constructing both perennial and annual beds in formal landscape settings.
