Her book The Humane Gardener: Nurturing a Backyard Habitat for Wildlife explains the importance of coexisting with the local wildlife. Lawson lays out a blueprint on to how accomplish what others have labeled impossible: how to incorporate native plants into the landscape for the benefit of both humans and wildlife.
