Our Garden Lover's Guide series has been hailed by Garden Design as "eminently practical" and by Home as "authoritative" and "indispensible." These three new volumes complete our survey of American gardens; together, the four books feature over 500 public gardens across the country.

Each book is designed for readers to use as they travel through a state or region. Similar to our highly successful European garden guides, the U. S. guides are illustrated in full color with numerous photographic images and watercolor drawings of the most significant gardens, all specially commissioned for these books. In addition to insightful texts, contact data, opening hours, admission fees, and directions are provided. The perfect companion for any garden enthusiast, whether tourist or armchair traveler.
