Inside Out: Relating Garden to House by Page Dickey

House and Garden ideally share a special relationship. Each is married to, extends from, and echoes the style of the other. It's easy enough to lose sight of this association and regard the garden as an isolated spot. But with a little awareness, a garden and its house can be merged into a harmonious whole.

The many ways a house can be enhanced by its grounds are illustrated in this book. Thirteen distinetive properties, chosen from different climates across America and representing wildly varying styles -- a Zenlike plot in Texas, a natural prairie garden in the Midwest, a miniature rain forest in Miami -- show the reader how to establish the bond between a home and its land. To emphasize the unifying elements, more than 100 photographs depict pathways and perspectives, porches and rooms that join indoors to out, as well as clever frameworks fashioned from hedges, flower borders, terraces, and walls. These personal gardens, created with artistry, imagination, and charm, are sure to sow seeds of inspiration.
