Celebrated internationally as artists and gardeners, Little and Lewis open the gates to their renowned garden retreat and share the personalities and enthusiasms that have shaped its wild fantasia of plants, hardscape and art. George and David are long-time collaborators whose concrete sculptures and installation have been collected around the world. Their Puget Sound garden is the primary showcase for their artwork but also for the unique gardening qualities that epitomize their style. Water features, oversized and broadleaved plants, expansive use of color, zone-pushing tropicals, architectural emphasis, and elements of classicism and mystery--all combine to create a deeply personal and magical space.
In this long-awaited book, Little and Lewis describe how any gardener can achieve this kind of excitement and space for reflection in his or her own garden. From practical advice on how to make a slow-drip fountain, choose complementary colors, or build an inexpensive Tuscan style wall to conceptual discussions on laying out borders and making use of water, they offer inspiration and encourage gardeners to use imagination and take risks. Stunning and unforgettable photographs by Barbara Denk provide a lush visual interpretation, while NPR's "Doyenne of Dirt", Ketzel Levine, describes the authors' important influence on the gardening community. Winner of 2006 Garden Writer's Association Silver Medal, A Garden Gallery is now in it's 4th reprint.
