Gardens of the Hudson Valley PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Gardens of the Hudson Valley free pdf The majesty of the Hudson River has captivated both artists and visitors for generations, and the gardens along its banks have a special character. Those created for the Gilded Age estates are more formal- private gardens respond directly to the rolling landscape and mature forests. The area is a crucible for the development of American landscape design since the major figures--Alexander Jackson Downing, Frederick Law Olmsted, Beatrix Farrand, and Fletcher Steele--all worked in the Hudson Valley.
"Gardens of the Hudson Valley "focuses on the historic landscape and how gardens have been integrated into it.""Photographers Steve Gross and Susan Daly have selected twenty-five gardens between Yonkers and Hudson, including famous estate gardens like Kykuit, Boscobel, the Vanderbilt Mansion, and Olana (all open to the public) and private gardens that combine sweeping views and lush plantings.
Garden writers Susan Lowry and Nancy Berner describe each of the gardens in detail, focusing on the history of the site and the strategies for design and plant materials.
