Overview

Gardens blooming in the sky. Vegetables growing 59 stories above the city streets. Botanical gardens working to protect the worlds natural environment. Community gardens, courtyard gardens, dining gardens, gardens in parks and along the avenues, gardens in offices and museums. All these are captured in stunning color photographs taken expressly for this first book on the gardens of New York City, which is packed with ideas for gardeners everywhere.

Some of America's finest landscape designers and horticulturists share their secrets and plant lists in this unique volume. Nearly 120 gardens of every style and type are pictured, from Donald Trump's private rooftop garden and the Cherry Esplanade at the United Nations to a backyard garden in Queens and the Japanese Garden at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

All five boroughs of the city are represented, and a useful map shows the location of all the gardens that can be visited.
