In Private Gardens of the Bay Area (October 2017, The Monacelli Press), seasoned garden writers Susan Lowry and Nancy Berner and landscape photographer Marion Brenner celebrate the different approaches to gardening in the Bay Area and illuminate the unrivalled beauty of Northern California.
In this wonderful new volume we get the breadth of the sky, the quality of the light, the sparkle of the Bay, the shapes of the hills—that has beckoned landscape designers and gardeners for generations.
The book is organized geographically—starting with the San Francisco Peninsula, moving north into San Francisco itself, crossing the Bay into Berkeley and Oakland, and finishing in Napa, Sonoma, and Marin—Private Gardens of the Bay Area features more than thirty-five private gardens. These gardens encompass an extraordinary range of micro-climates that foster the cultivation of a diverse range of plants.
