Gardens in the Spirit of Place

Stewart, Tabori and Chang, 2005. Photography by John Hall

“Few writers understand the concept of regionalism as well as Page Dickey…In her book, Page takes the reader on an armchair tour of fourteen American gardens from the West Coast to New England, and from the upper Midwest to the deep South. In each, the design and materials clearly but softly proclaim the region of the country in which they could only occur. With a gracious style, Page explores the garden’s setting, the owner’s needs, and the design that, in every instance, appears to belong right where it is.” Dick Turner, Pacific Horticulture
