Description

 “Like Wave Hill itself, these pages make an indelible impression—wildly intimate, possibility-laden, provocative—leaving me wide awake and hungry for a visit.” —Margaret Roach, author of A Way to Garden

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, lovingly written by Thomas Christopher, brings this splendid, sensory experience home by honoring the unsurpassed beauty of Wave Hill. It explores the different areas of the garden—the flower garden, the shade border, the wild garden, the conservatory, and more—and gives home gardeners helpful information on the plants, techniques, and design choices that define this iconic space. Filled with stunning, ethereal photography by Ngoc Minh Ngo, Nature Into Art will enchant and inspire you to practice the Wave Hill way of gardening.

Review quotes

"A thorough and fascinating history of an amazing garden. Nature Into Art treats us with an informative and inspiring story of excellence, variety, and perseverance." —Martha Stewart, author, entrepreneur, founder Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia

“Like Wave Hill itself, these pages make an indelible impression—wildly intimate, possibility-laden, provocative—leaving me wide awake and hungry for a visit.” —Margaret Roach,  author of A Way to Garden

“Ever since I moved to New York City 30 years ago, I’ve thought of Wave Hill as my own private garden. But I don’t mind sharing. It’s a horticultural escape for concrete-weary city folk in all weather, and Ngoc Minh Ngo’s poetic photographs capture the passing seasons beautifully." —Stephen Orr, author and editor

"By marrying plantsmanship, artistry, and human comradery, this iconic garden has led the way, earning its place in gardening history and inspiring many to be creative and bold." —Fergus Garrett, head gardener, Great Dixter House and Gardens

“Ngoc Minh Ngo’s fulsome color photographs illustrate the thought processes of the garden’s designers, and Christopher bestows specificity to the plants depicted. Gives this remarkable garden in the Bronx its full due.” Booklist
