Filled with lush photography, this practical and accessible guide will show you how to make your garden a place of beauty and inspiration during the winter months, as well as throughout the year.
Why put all of our gardening effort into the magnificent but short months of summer? With Winterland, learn how the dramatic stillness of a garden in winter provides abundant opportunities to deepen our connection with nature. Accomplished landscape designer Cathy Rees guides you through the basics of creating rich and compelling all-season garden environments—exploring form, texture, plant choices, lighting, and more. Design strategies are reinforced by practical advice on garden care, pruning, maintenance, and coexisting with animals and birds. Learn how to position a distinctive tree to capture the first rays of a rosy December sunrise, or reconceive the flow of an entire landscape. Winterland gives gardeners the tools to develop outdoor havens that will evolve over seasons and years, to become true garden sanctuaries for any season.
