Fletcher Steele, Landscape Architect: An Account of the Gardenmaker's Life, 1885-1971

Front Cover
Univ of Massachusetts Press, 2003 - Architecture - 321 pages
For sixty years, Fletcher Steele practiced landscape architecture as a fine art, designing nearly seven hundred gardens, from Boston to Detroit, from North Carolina to Canada. Often brilliant, always original, Steele's work is considered by many to constitute the essential link between nineteenth-century Beaux Arts formalism and modern landscape design.
