Award-winning author and television personality Michele Driscoll Alioto instructs by example. Visiting 13 of the most impressive (and diverse) private interior landscapes in the country, this San Franciscobased garden designer shows backyard novices how to make the most of planting possibilities. This handsome hardcover pictorial intersperses colorful graphics and useful tips.
Michelle Driscoll Alioto, garden writer and host of The Inside Dirt on HGTV, and photographer John M. Hall showcase the Glorious Indoor Gardens of 13 talented practitioners. Although more of an appreciation than a how-to, this celebration provides advice on the ways these grand displays can be adapted for common houses. By examining diverse environments such as a West Palm Beach loggia, a desert landscape in Arizona, a water garden in Houston housing championship koi and rooftop greenhouses, Alioto offers a wide range of possibilities.
