Gardens Private and Personal: A Garden Club of America Book

Author(s): Nancy D'Oench


More than 90 exquisite gardens were photographed all around the United States especially for this book by best-selling Abrams and STC photographer Mick Hales to show how all the areas of gardens were successfully designed by members of the Garden Club of America in a variety of ways. Organized according to parts of the garden - entryways, herbaceous borders, water features, hedges, etc. - the pictures are accompanied by insightful commentaries and extended captions. Quotations from the owners - dedicated gardeners all - offer an additional source of inspiration to any garden lover. Filled with good ideas for the gardener and luxuriously produced, this is a perfect gift for any gardener and an immensely useful source of ideas for the garden designer.
