Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Renowned garden designer Gordon Hayward's newest book focuses on one major principle: creating front-yard gardens that will inspire and invite, transforming neighborhoods and encouraging people to create compelling spaces in which to relax, visit with neighbors, and enjoy a natural space. A front garden should welcome, enliven, enrich, and engage. Traditional foundation planting--that cliche that means glomming a few evergreen shrubs against the front foundation of the house and then running lawn from it down to the sidewalk or street--is a thing of the past. Hayward offers a step-by-step approach that starts by helping people find their Big Idea, then guides the homeowner through the process of making all the smaller decisions. He also introduces fundamental garden-design principles, illustrated throughout the book with beautiful photography and line drawings, allowing homeowners to effectively apply the ideas no matter where or what type of climate they live.

Feast on these lush photos with an open mind, you'll come away with an endless supply of ideas.

Chapters include:

How to Look at Garden Images

The Driveway, Cars and the Front Garden

The Path to the Front Door

A Lot of Lawn, A Little Lawn?

Gardens Between House and Sidewalk

Fencing, Walls and Gates

Sitting Areas in the Front Garden

Gordon Hayward holds degrees from Wesleyan University and began gardening in the 1970s. In 1984, he turned to the work of garden design, lecturing, and writing full time. He consults throughout the Northeast for residential clients, their architects, and builders. He is the author of several books, including The Intimate Garden: Twenty Years and Four Seasons in Our Garden, Garden Paths: Inspiring Designs and Practical Projects, and Your House, Your Garden: A Foolproof Approach to Garden Design, as well as a variety of articles for Horticulture Magazine. Hayward is a certified member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers.

Review:

"In three previous books and numerous articles for leading horticultural magazines, Haywood has shown himself to be not only a talented landscape designer but also a gifted teacher. The front garden is one of the areas he explored in Your House, Your Garden and is the foundation of this examination of how house, garden, sidewalk and street can be integrated into an aesthetically pleasing and functional design. Haywood asserts that 'front gardens welcome, enliven, enrich and engage us.' He goes on to analyze key elements including style; driveways and parking; walkways; the front door; the front lawn; extending the garden to the sidewalk or street; walls, fences and gates; and sitting areas. Finally, he offers helpful, if relatively brief, listings of street-tough plants for six U.S. regions. The lush color photographs and illustrated landscape plans alone make this a valuable addition to any serious gardener's library. But there's an even more compelling reason everyone who enjoys gardening books should own this one: it's based entirely on Haywood's analysis of existing photographs. Explanations of his approach help readers learn to 'look at these images, manipulate them, change them in your mind so that the gardens in these photographs become an inspiration for your own garden making.'" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
