Secret Gardens of Hollywood and Private Oases in Los Angeles

Secret Gardens of Hollywood and Private Oases in Los Angeles Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book offers a peek into the most beautiful private gardens of Los Angeles, one of the most verdant places on earth. Life here is meant to be lived outdoors and extravagantly, and these gardens reflect the town's larger-than-life personalities who take pride in their extraordinary garden sanctuaries. The sunny, warm climate in L.A. allows garden designers to unleash their most creative gardening fantasies, using plants collected from all over the world. The twenty-five gardens in the book illustrate the remarkable range of styles in the area, from Joni Mitchell's whimsical Bel-Air garden retreat to a garden of rare succulent plants at Jack LaLanne's former residence to Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen's Southern-style country hideaway. Featuring all-new photographs by Erica Lennard, coauthor of the bestselling book "The Art of Doing Nothing," this escape book is sure to appeal to gardeners and star-gazers alike.
