Tomorrows Garden review å eBook or Kindle ePUB With a keen eye for aesthetics matched by a strong concern for the environment garden expertStephen Orr has developed a sense of what a modern garden should be small visually pleasing andresponsible In Tomorrow's Garden he presents gardens in 14 American cities that have been scaledback and simplified without sacrificing beauty or innovative designA devoted supporter of the organic gardening movement Orr ad. The book itself is handsome but the information is applicable to a fairly focused audience city dwellers or wealthier urbanites The majority of the book consists of case studies of gardens in California LA Venice New York Austin Portland and Nantucket not exactly a representative sample of likely locations for a wide audience However for those who fall within this book s focus it has some very helpful resources websites contact information for the landscape designers whose work is pictured therein I was disappointed to find that the book was devoted mostly to case studies for people wealthy enough to afford professional services landscape architects horticulturists etc or who live in cities which already have established community garden groups this book was less about how to create your own forward looking garden than here are some pictures of gardens which I think represent the trend towards future gardens It was a lengthy series of interviews with people who already had gardens and listed several of the plants and their latin names which were used and some of the materials somewhat helpful but was still of a narrative travelogue than a well ordered curriculum for gardening mindfully in the future One thing I did appreciate was that the author made a distinction between responsible gardens that are purposed for aesthetic appeal and those that are purposed for production but which also admittedly may have a certain aesthetic appeal Also the author is apparently gay and seemingly than half of his interviewees are also gay which might bother some readers just an FYI If you are looking for a text that will delve into the principles of design or provides a curriculum for here s how you can do the same you had probably better look elsewhere It gives topical treatment on those subjects and refers to to other resources online for a information
