Home & Garden 2016 from the Winter Newsletter

These titles were featured in our 2016 Winter Newsletter.

Inspiration for beautiful outdoor spaces—from untamed to highly manicured gardens—abounds in this gorgeous book. Dozens of gardens are profiled, and each includes a “Steal This Look” feature that contains tips (and sometimes resources) to help readers emulate the design. I loved reading about how travel, history, or well-known landscapes (like the High Line in New York) influenced many of the featured gardeners. I can imagine that Gardenista will be a similar source of inspiration. —S.B.

The outstanding public garden of dry gardening pioneer Ruth Bancroft, planted in the early 1970s and located on eight acres in Walnut Creek, is a stunning place to visit. But those who cannot make it there will find much to learn, and be inspired by, in The Bold Dry Garden. Bancroft is a fearless planter, and her landscape designs are packed with breathtaking colors, textures, and shapes. If you need a nudge toward being a more adventurous and water-wise gardener, this should do the trick. —S.B.
