Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gardening has become America's favorite pastime, inspiring a tremendous interest in both antique and reproduction garden ornaments and furniture. May Hill, author of Abrams' widely praised Grandmother's Garden, returns here to early American gardens to trace three centuries of trellises, arbors, fences, summerhouses, and other outbuildings in the context of specific periods, places, and American garden styles.

Hill draws on paintings, photographs, historical narratives, and personal recollections to create this unprecedented portrait of American garden architecture. From the practical 18th-century necessary house" to 19th-century Neoclassical dovecotes and Chinese Chippendale benches, she describes the evolution of characteristic American motifs and crafts.
