Hidden Gardens of Beacon Hill

£9.99

Product description

Published 2013.

On the third Thursday in May members of Boston’s Beacon Hill Garden Club welcome garden enthusiasts to their neighborhood to attend one of the city’s most popular horticultural events, the Hidden Gardens of Beacon Hill tour. The first tour, held in May of 1929, included eleven “backyard gardens” and successfully raised more than one thousand dollars for civic initiatives. Eighty-five years later the tradition continues offering a unique opportunity to visit intimate private gardens otherwise concealed from public view while supporting environmental projects. Like the gardens themselves this is a small book full of surprises. At 88 pages in length the full-color hard bound volume features more than fifty gardens exquisitely photographed by Peter Vanderwarker and Thomas Lingner. Although they share common features the gardens vary in character through the use of thoughtful and creative design elements tailored to accentuate their individuality. These elements, around which the book is structured, include paving, wall treatments, changes in levels, gates, doors, ornaments, furniture, light, color and plant material. A list of plants that succeed in the gardens is provided. [Frrom a review by Patrice Todisco]
