GARDENS IN THE SPIRIT OF PLACE
Author: Page Dickey; photographer: John M. Hall

“Consult the genius of the place in all,” Alexander Pope famously wrote, advocating gardens that are in harmony with the landscape rather than imposed upon it.

Gardens in the Spirit of Place takes us on an insider's tour of some of the best examples of this philosophy, gardens that celebrate their regional origins above all. This book profiles 18 beautiful gardens from across the United States. Whether it's an eastern woodland garden on Mount Desert Island, Maine, a Wisconsin farmland garden on Lake Pewaukee, or a garden planted in gravel in Palo Alto, California, each garden presented here is a sensitive and original response to its surroundings.

For those who want to make their own regional gardens, the book is full of new ideas and inspiration.
