The Authentic Garden
Five Principles for Cultivating A Sense of PlaceBook - 2007
"American gardeners have tended to turn to other national traditions - such as Italy's, Japan's, or England's - for inspiration. The unhappy result of this piecemeal stylistic borrowing has been the creation of gardens that bear no relationship to local landscapes and history, and that have no connection with our daily lives. In this cogently reasoned and persuasively argued volume, Claire Sawyers aims to show how this tendency can be reversed: how we can create gardens that are hath deeply rooted in their surroundings and deeply satisfying to their creators and owners."--BOOK JACKET.
