Excerpt from Little Gardens: How to Beautify City Yards and Small Country Spaces
There are many books on gardening for the few who have large estates, and few, if any, for the many who have small ones. This volume is designed for the uses of the family whose lands are a house lot. It is not a manual; it is not a grammar upon the science or subject of small gardens; it is a series of hints and suggestions, which may be unendingly diversified. The writer has drawn upon his own experience for most of his material, and on his imagination for his plans, but he has taken the word of authori ties on some matters respecting the plants to be used, since it is not within the fortune of people who cultivate small gardens to acquire a close acquaintance with all the ﬂowers that can be grown between the thirtieth and the forty-fifth parallel. City yards are usually dusty, weedy and neglected, the theory of their owners being that it is not worth while to cultivate patches of.
