About this title


Dogs are the soft underbelly of every gardener," says English landscape designer Tim Reese. In fact, gardeners are often as crazy about their dogs as they are about their flowers, and would not dream of tending their beds or inspecting their acreage without the companionship of at least one four-legged friend. In Dogs in Their Gardens, noted garden authority Page Dickey takes us on an insider's tour of 20 of the most charming and imaginative gardens in America and abroad, with man's best friend as reliable host. A classic Frederick Law Olmsted design at Manchester-by-the-Sea, Bunny Williams's stylish potager, a tropical garden surrounding a New England pool - plus the creations of Frank Cabot, Robert Dash, and other esteemed gardeners - are explored not only as fine examples of garden design, but as the sanctuaries of the dogs who call them home. The author has trained her camera on an assortment of garden-loving dogs - including black labradors, English mastiffs, standard poodles, and Jack Russell terriers. Shown contemplating the day, stretched out across a garden path, or bounding joyously down a panel of lawn, these dogs delight in the earthy pleasures their gardens offer and invite us to do the same. In this appealing volume, Page Dickey has created an intimate portrait of beguiling canines and their distinctive floral domains, neither of which would be complete without the other.
