About this title

Synopsis:

“Delightful!” —The New York Times Book Review

Discover a world of beauty and creativity! Chanticleer has been called the most romantic, imaginative, and exciting public garden in America. It is a place of pleasure and learning, relaxing yet filled with ideas to take home. And now those lessons are available for everyone in this stunning book! You’ll learn techniques specific to different conditions and plant palettes; how to use hardscape materials in a fresh way; and how to achieve the perfect union between plant and site. And Rob Cardillo’s exquisite photographs of exciting combinations will be sure to stimulate your own creativity. Whether you’re already under Chanticleer’s spell or have yet to visit, The Art of Gardening will enable you to bring the special magic that pervades this most artful of gardens into your own home landscape.

From the Back Cover:

To visit Chanticleer is to step into a world of beauty and creativity that few other gardens can match. Its fifteen distinct areas—from formal borders to woodland glades to a fantasy garden planted among ruins—offer unique embodiments of color, texture, and form. 

But Chanticleer isn’t just a place to marvel at. It also offers practical lessons for re-creating some of the gardens’ most spectacular effects in your own home landscape. Whether your goal is a spectacular display of spring bulbs, a drought-tolerant border bursting with color, or container plantings that dazzle the eye, you’ll find a unique blend of inspiration and practical craft in every chapter.

Chanticleer owes much of its success to the creative freedom it allows the individual gardeners, and in these pages you’ll hear their voices as they reveal the techniques specific to different conditions and plant palettes; how to experiment successfully; and how to achieve the perfect union between plant and site. Whether you’re already under Chanticleer’s spell or have yet to visit, The Art of Gardening will enable you to share in the special magic that pervades this most artful of gardens.
