THE GOOD GARDEN: THE LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE OF EDMUND HOLLANDER DESIGN. Anne Raver. Monacelli Press, New York, 2015. Distributed by Penguin Random House LLC, New York. 304 pp. with 393 col. ills. 25 x 30 cm. LC 2014-954999 ISBN 9781580934152 In English.
Publisher's description: Crisp hornbeam hedges lining a country drive and throwing geometric shadows on the gravel below. Decadent cascades of fragrant wisteria spilling over a stone pergola. Rustling leaves along an allee of delicate crepe myrtle trees. Waving blossoms of roses, sage, and hydrangeas -- along a salty shoreline. Edmund Hollander Landscape Architects creates gardens filled with unexpected textures, colors, and sounds meant to appeal to all the senses, inviting us to truly live in the landscape. This volume presents dozens of gorgeous estate gardens throughout the Northeast, approached thematically; individual sections reveal how components such as gateways, paths, pool terraces, bosques and groves, walls, and borders contribute to lush garden rooms, windblown seaside gardens, calming meadow gardens, intricate formal gardens, and shady tracts of woodland. Over 300 color photographs of beautiful properties in the Hamptons, Connecticut, and upstate New York provide glimpses of the best garden design happening today while breaking down its ideas for the home gardener.
