Nature Into Art : The Gardens of Wave Hill
by Thomas Christopher and Ngoc Minh Ngo


Overview - "Like Wave Hill itself, these pages make an indelible impression--wildly intimate, possibility-laden, provocative--leaving me wide awake and hungry for a visit." --Margaret Roach, author of A Way to Garden

Wave Hill, a world-renowned public garden in the Bronx, boasts a classic horticultural craftsmanship unrivaled among other public gardens in the United States. But it also embraces a design spirit that is daring and innovative. Every year brings changes to Wave Hill: new combinations of colors, textures, and forms, along with creative themes and constant experimentation. Nature into Art brings this splendid, sensory experience home by honoring the unsurpassed beauty of Wave Hill. It explores the different areas of the garden--the flower garden, the shade border, the wild garden, the conservatory, and more--and gives gardeners helpful information on the plants, techniques, and design choices that define this iconic space. Filled with stunning, ethereal photography by Ngoc Minh Ngo, Nature into Art will enchant and inspire you to practice the Wave Hill way of gardening.
