American Roots

Regular price $40.00

For decades, many American gardens fell short on originality. Many people were content with cookie-cutter landscapes—the iconic lawn or the perennial-lined front walk and picket fence—or they mimicked foreign styles like English cottage gardens and Japanese Zen landscapes. Yet, in recent years, bold designers are championing an American design aesthetic that embraces regional cultures, plant palettes, and growing conditions.
 
American Roots highlights a thoughtfully curated list of designers with exceptional home gardens, focused on those who push the boundaries, trial extraordinary plants, embrace a regional ethos, and express their creative talents in highly personal ways.  Covering all the regions of the country, the profiles dive into design influences, share the back stories of the gardens and their designers, and offer information-packed sidebars with design tips and plant palettes. American Roots offers and extraordinary collection of inspiring gardens plus insights, anecdotes, and lessons from the best designers shaping today’s landscape.
