Opis - From rooftop gardens to flora-laden balconies, flowers and plants bestow a warm grace to unconventional and indoor spaces. Private paradises nestled in the backyards of homes. Rooftops that act as community gardens. Edible patches of beauty hidden within city blocks. Evergreen shows the verdant aesthetic statement that allows city dwellers to bring nature back into the every day and quenches urban gardening desires. Living with plants is mutually beneficial; beyond the exchange of carbon dioxide and oxygen, leaves, flowers, and stems bring a warm and individual charisma to any space. Throughout this engaging collection of projects, urban gardening is complimented by a softer side: balconies that add an extra relaxing touch to a morning cup of coffee, flowers that provide calming fragrances throughout the home, or romantic blooms that feed the soul rather than fill a plate. Evergreen also inspires those who already live in the midst of lush horticultural and sustainable oases. Straightforward plans and examples illustrate how to transform unused spaces, both indoors and out, into flourishing and functional patches. Sketched floorplans visually detail a myriad of projects including which plants thrive in dark living room corners or which foliage enjoys the damp environment of a bathroom. The profiles of both professional and hobbyist plant lovers provide an engaging guide to productively getting one"s hands dirty; herb gardens on fire escapes, greenhouses that double as living spaces, and community gardens atop roofs all awaken growing curiosities. From cactus farmers and florists to shop owners and activists, let Evergreen"s cast of characters guide you in making and maintaining a green utopia and in quenching gardening longings.

Montrose Duke University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Something is blooming every day of the year in the renowned gardens at Montrose, Nancy Goodwin's nineteenth-century estate in historic Hillsborough, North Carolina. Since moving to Montrose with her husband in 1977, Goodwin has transformed more than twenty acres into an extraordinary complex of interlocking gardens that come in and out of focus as the seasons overlap and change. Beautifully written and illustrated, Montrose: Life in a Garden is Goodwin's affectionate biography of her gardens, recounting how and why each section was developed over the years, including the Dianthus Walk, Nandina Land, Hellebore Slope, Mother-in-Law Walk, Snowdrop Woods, and Jo's Bed. It is also a meticulous month-by-month chronicle of a specific year in these gardens--a year that saw a punishing drought that threatened Goodwin's no-irrigation policy, a damaging December ice storm, and the beginnings of a plan to preserve Montrose in the future. Working on her knees for long days throughout the year, Nancy Goodwin always has a vision of how her gardens will appear in twelve months or in twelve years. She will spend weeks, for instance, planting hundreds of snow drops along a woodsy path in order to enjoy a fleeting week of exquisite beauty in coming years. She never puts anything into the ground without imagining what form, colour, and texture it will add to a bed. With tireless patience and unflagging optimism, Goodwin will wait years to see a single plant bloom. Following Goodwin's activities throughout the year, readers will learn the fundamentals of maintaining a four-season garden in Zone 7 in the South. Award-winning garden illustrator Ippy Patterson has provided more than 160 lavish illustrations of the gardens at Montrose and these meticulously detailed drawings appear throughout the book. Nancy Goodwin has written for Fine Gardening, American Gardener, Horticulture, Veranda, Country Home Country Gardens, and other magazines. She is a co-author of A Year in Our Gardens: Letters by Nancy Goodwin and Allen Lacy and co-editor of A Rock Garden in the South, by Elizabeth Lawrence, also published by Duke University Press. From 1984 to 1993, she operated Montrose Nursery, which specialized in unusual perennials, including hellebores and cyclamen. Ippy Patterson has illustrated garden columns for the New York Times, the Hartford Courant, McCall's Magazine, and Country Living Gardener Magazine. She has illustrated numerous books, including An Elizabethan Bestiary: Retold, 100 Flowers and How They Got Their Names, and No Bones, for which she won the National Academy of Sciences Illustration Award in 1990.

Chihuly Garden Installations Abrams

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The greatest living artist in the medium of glass, Dale Chihuly has had a lifelong interest in the colours and forms that appear in nature, in particular those of plant and marine life: 'I want my work to look like it just happened, as if it was made by nature'. Toward this end, his work has become increasingly open, using forms that show a strong relationship to the architecture of natural shapes. When Chihuly's work is placed in the context of the natural world, the outcome is both wondrous and strange. "Chihuly Garden Installations" explores the results of his nearly decade-long investigation into designing site-specific installations for some of the world's preeminent gardens and conservatories. This handsomely illustrated book follows his investigation from its beginning at Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago to his recent installation at the Cheekwood Botanical Garden in Nashville, Tennessee. Tracing the connection between Chihuly's art and botanical life, "Chihuly Garden Installations" shows how the exchange between art and nature can shift from the harmonious and tranquil to stunning juxtapositions of scale and colour. Lush illustrations showcase the ever-fascinating arrangement of Chihuly's unique glass sculptures among the natural beauty of the plants, flowers and landscapes of these magnificent gardens.
