Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Garden Conservancy is celebrating its 25th anniversary with this beautifully illustrated book that documents a selection of the outstanding public and private gardens it has worked with since its founding in 1989. The book showcases eight gardens the conservancy has helped preserve and 43 of the more than 3,000 private gardens across the country that have been opened to the public through its Open Days Program. The private gardens cover a wide variety of regions, habitats, designs, and plants, from early spring through autumn. Featured private gardens include Panayoti Kelaidisandrsquo;s rock garden in Denver, Colorado; Deborah Whigham and Gary Ratwayandrsquo;s collection of native and Mediterranean plants and earth walls in Albion, California; and James Davidandrsquo;s imaginative mix of heat-tolerant plants, rills, and pools in Austin, Texas.
