"The study of art is the most important study a garden designer can pursue." - Marco Polo Stufano

In Art and the Gardener, Gordon Hayward's tenth book on garden design, he makes a radical departure from his earlier approaches in order to explore elements of visual language across two artistic disciplines-fine painting and garden design-in hopes that the remarkable crosscurrents will help reveal how to design or simply appreciate your garden with greater acuity. In celebrating the visual language garden designers share with painters and artists such as Thomas Cole, Camille Pissarro, Piet Mondrian, Paul Cezanne, Claude Monet, Henri Matisse, Gustav Klimt, Vincent Van Gogh, and more, Hayward explains how to choose your garden style, the relationship between house and garden, the overall composition, specific design principles, roles trees play in the garden, color, and bringing it all together.

Gordon Hayward is the author of several books, including The Welcoming Garden, Small Buildings, Small Gardens, 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. Gordon travels extensively across the country and in Europe, designing residential gardens and lecturing on various gardening topics. He lives in Westminster West, Vermont.

"The study of art is the most important study a garden designer can pursue." -Marco Polo Stufano, garden designer and curator

In Art and the Gardener, Gordon Hayward's tenth book on garden design, he makes a radical departure from his earlier approaches in order to explore elements of visual language across two artistic disciplines-fine painting and garden design-in hopes that the remarkable crosscurrents will help reveal how to design or simply appreciate your garden with greater acuity. In celebrating the visual language garden designers share with painters and artists such as Thomas Cole, Camille Pissarro, Piet Mondrian, Paul Cézanne, Claude Monet, Henri Matisse, Gustav Klimt, Vincent van Gogh, and many others, Hayward explains how, by looking at fine paintings you admire, you can more carefully choose your garden style, the relationship between house and garden, the overall composition, specific design principles, roles trees play in the garden, color, and how to bring it all together.

Gordon Hayward is the author of several books, including The Welcoming Garden, Small Buildings, Small Gardens, 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. He is also a contributing editor for Fine Gardening Magazine. Gordon travels extensively across the country, designing residential gardens and lecturing on garden design. He lives in Westminster West, Vermont.
