An intimate tour of more than twenty private New England gardens by local visual artists offers insight into how their gardens have become venues for fearless artistic expression and experimentation, in a photographic survey that evaluates each garden from an aesthetic approach.

It's not surprising that visual artists would create particularly interesting gardens. Besides a trained eye, they use their penchant for fearless artistic expression. This book offers a most unusual personal look at 20 spectacular private gardens in New England that will inspire readers to look at their own gardens with fresh perspectives. Lavishly illustrated with color photographs, the book features eye-opening interviews with the artist/gardeners, in which they explain their aesthetic approach to garden design.
