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 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 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.

A beautiful and informative book Wave Hill is my favorite public garden. I visit often and have met the gardeners and call some friends. This is a beautiful and informative book. The light captured in the dreamy photos make it feel as if you are touring this place opposite the New Jersey cliffs across the Hudson. The text is clear and helpful for design and planting combinations. The gardeners are all interviewed making an even more personal read. This mature garden is as wonderful as it has ever been, and all within the City…

Stunning photos I had no idea that a unique garden like this existed in New York! This is a book well worth owning just for the photographs alone which are stunning. A must-read book for anyone who loves gardens and enjoys reading the history of various gardens, just because the histories are fascinating.I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
