Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this groundbreaking book, noted landscape designer and award-winning writer Julie Moir Messervy and bestselling author Sarah Susanka reveal how to bring house and garden into perfect harmony. After all, who doesn't yearn for a landscape that is as well designed as the interior of their home? In Outside the Not So Big House, Julie and Sarah teach you everything you need to know about the design concepts essential to extending your home beyond its four walls.

Lushly photographed and illustrated with vivid drawings, Outside the Not So Big House explores how to build pathways and journeys in your gardens; how to make the most of your site; how to use details to bring it all together. Twenty homes from across the country aptly illustrate these easy-to-grasp design ideas. Fans of Sarah's previous Not So Big books will be pleased to discover not only Julie's clear, concise prose but also a new vision for creating home.

Review:

"This perfect collaboration between the talented and articulate Julie Moir Messervy and Sarah Susanka proves what a huge pleasure the landscape of a 'not so big' house can be. A must read..." Tom Christopher, columnist, House & Garden magazine

Review:

"Sarah Susanka and Julie Moir Messervy's clearly written text offers practical advice for designing indoor-outdoor spaces that respond to modern lifestyles. They reveal secrets for achieving the ideal combination of architecture and nature in the home and in the garden." James A. van Sweden, Fellow, American Society of Landscape Architects and author of Architecture in the Garden

Book News Annotation:

Drawing on the Japanese ideogram katei meaning unified home and garden, Messervy (columnist for Fine Gardening magazine) and Susanka (author of The Not So Big House) offer a "photographic dictionary of ideas" for integrating smaller homes with their sites. Each provides a summary of her "homescaping" design philosophy. Color photos by Grey Crawford and landscape design plans illustrate ways to accomplish this integration. The guide includes a list of the featured US architects and landscape designers. Oversize: 10.25x10.25 ".
