Publisher Comments:

Through stunning full-color photographs and personal narrative, Richard Hartlage entices us to create high drama in our gardens. The essence of this provocative book lies in his ideas on how to successfully marry horticulture and landscape architecture, showcasing gardens from around the country. Richard covers the elements of design: color, light, time, sequence, form, and texture. With humor and a dose of pragmatism, he tempts us to take a fresh approach to envisioning our gardens.

Inspiring insights and suggestions, coupled with beautiful photographs, provide both beginning and seasoned gardeners with the resolve and tools necessary to achieve new visions.
