Summary "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 celebrates the unsurpassed beauty of Wave Hill. It deeply explores different areas of the grounds--the flower garden, shade border, wild garden, conservatory, and more--and provides helpful information on the plants, techniques, and design choices that define this iconic space. Filled with evocative photography, Nature into Art will enchant and inspire you to practice the Wave Hill way of gardening."--Book jacket.
