Overview

In Dogs in Their Gardens, noted garden authority Page Dickey takes us on an insider's tour of 20 of the most charming and imaginative gardens in America and abroad, with man's best friend as reliable host. A classic Frederick Law Olmsted design at Manchester-by-the-Sea, Bunny Williams's stylish potager, a tropical garden surrounding a New England pool-plus the creations of Frank Cabot, Robert Dash, and other esteemed gardeners-are explored not only as fine examples of garden design, but as the sanctuaries of the dogs who call them home.

In this appealing volume, Page Dickey has created an intimate portrait of beguiling canines and their distinctive floral domains, neither of which would be complete without the other.

Author Biography: Page Dickey is a garden writer, lecturer, and photographer, whose books include Inside Out: Relating Garden to House (Stewart, Tabori & Chang), Duck Hill Journal: A Year in a Country Garden (Houghton Mifflin), and the award-winning Breaking Ground: Portraits of Ten Garden Designers (Artisan).
