Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a keen eye for aesthetics matched by a strong concern for the environment, garden expert

Stephen Orr has developed a sense of what a modern garden should be: small, visually pleasing, and

responsible. In Tomorrows Garden, he presents gardens in 14 American cities that have been scaled

back and simplified without sacrificing beauty or innovative design.

 
A devoted supporter of the organic gardening movement, Orr advises gardeners to think about their gardens as part of an interconnected whole with the surrounding environment—with an eye to water usage, local ecology, and preservation of resources. However, for those who are afraid that a sustainable garden means a lack of flora and fauna, Orr believes that a garden, first and foremost, should be a thing of beauty. He encourages flower lovers to plant flowers, and he showcases gardens filled with traditional and exotic plants that are designed with both visual appeal and the environment in mind.

 
With detailed case studies, stunning photographs, and an appendix of resources and information to

help gardeners achieve their ecological best, Tomorrows Garden will teach you the true definition of sustainability and show you how to create beauty without excess in the 21st century and beyond.

 

Book News Annotation:

Stephen Orr (gardening editorial director Martha Stewart Living magazine) shares his vision of 21st century gardening in over 200 gorgeous photographs he has taken of gardens in 10 US cities. Gardens now (and will in the future), he says, take into account local climates and ecosystems without sacrificing aesthetics. In sections titled "Garden where you live," "Consider the materials," and "Edible gardens and community" he indeed has his finger on the pulse of modern gardening's commitment to sustainability coupled with fabulous design and passion for invoking a commonality of purpose. Street gardens, an urban apiary, gardens of stone and water, a modernist children's garden, seaside gardens, and a family farm are but a few of the featured spaces, which along with Orr's engaging narrative and judicious advice, make this a likely favorite among this year's crop of gardening books.
