House and garden ideally share a special relationship. Each is married to, extends from, and echoes the style of the other. It's easy enough to lose sight of this association and regard the garden as an isolated spot. But with a little awareness, a garden and its house can be merged into a harmonious whole.
The many ways a house can be enhanced by its grounds are illustrated. Author Page Dickey highlights thirteen personal gardens (many never published before) created with artistry and charm, as intimate extensions of the houses they surround. Chosen from different climates across America, representing wildly varying styles -- a Zen-like plot in the Lone Star State, a natural prairie garden in the Midwest, a miniature rain forest in Miami -- these distinctive gardens show the reader how to establish the bond between a home and its land. To emphasize the unifying elements, more than 100 photographs depict pathways and perspectives, porches and rooms that join indoors to out, and clever frameworks fashioned from hedges, flower borders, terraces, and walls. The imaginative gardens of Inside Out are sure to sow seeds of inspiration.
