About this title


A charming guide to gardening that delights and inspires through its glorious garden photography demonstrates, in a practical way, what readers can do to design and create their own beautiful, successful, and personal garden landscapes.


Garden photographer Richard Brown spent years enjoying the fruits of others' horticultural labor and planning his own ideal garden in his head. When the time came to plant his fantasy garden on his Vermont property, he found (after several seasons' hard work) that its proportions were out of whack and the plants were wrong for the climate. Back to square one for the gardener. Brown describes--at length, and not without humor--how he has learned to work with his garden, not wrestle with it.

Though this is a book of gorgeous photographs, not one of them is of Brown's garden--which is slightly frustrating, like hearing the beauty regimen of a veiled lady described. But Brown's gentle insistence that a gardener must, first of all, be true to his or her own space does sink in. In the end, this is less a book about his garden than about yours.
