The Authentic Garden: Naturalistic and Contemporary Landscape Design
By Richard Hartlage and Sandy Fischer
In contemporary American garden design, beauty for beauty's sake is making a comeback. The 60 gardens featured here trace current planting trends across the country, showcasing the best designs of recent years from the verdant Pacific Northwest to the tailored Eastern Seaboard, as well as prairies in Denver and Texas and exquisitely detailed private gardens in the Southwest that create a sense of lushness even while working exclusively within the vocabulary of cactuses and succulents.
Over 250 full-color color images reveal gardens created by the top American firms working today. Detail as well as overview images of gardens throughout all the seasons and abundant plant identifications make this volume a valuable reference for all home gardeners as well as landscape design professionals interested in tracing the themes prevalent in contemporary American gardens.
