Rating
Our homes' outdoor spaces can and should be as welcoming and carefully considered as our living rooms; when treated as extensions of our homes, these spaces enrich our lives immeasurably. That was the guiding principle when, under the direction of editor in chief Michelle Slatalla (whose New York Times style columns were weekly must-reads for a decade), the team behind Remodelista.com launched sister site Gardenista.com. Like Remodelista, Gardenista caters to an older, more established audience (75 percent of readers are over the age of 35) and is known for its sophisticated, well-edited aesthetic. The book contains lushly photographed tours of 12 enviable gardens; planting guides for a variety of climates and colour palettes; in-depth case studies on more than a dozen outdoor structures (from yoga studios to chicken coops); do-it-yourself projects; easy-to-implement design ideas; "The Gardenista 100," a guide to timeless everyday objects for the outdoors; plus advice from landscape professionals. Equal parts inspiration and expert intel, Gardenista is both a perfect starting point and an all-in-one manual when questions arise.

Reviews

"[This book has] something for anyone interested in horticulture and outdoor living--stylish gardens and exterior spaces, DIY projects, a shopping guide to top products, and expert tips." --Boston Globe "These well-loved spaces are also well lived-in. Slatalla is warm, approachable, lively--and chic. But she lets us in on everyone's secrets with sections labeled 'Steal This Look.' . . . She suggests ideas for paths, fire pits and foot showers, tips for drainage solutions, and a shopping directory that made me reach for my credit card." --The New York Times Book Review "If you love Gardenista.com, sister site to Remodelista.com, you'll be as happy as I am to have a photo-rich look-book for modernist gardens in hand. The focus is international, with up-to-the minute planting ideas, including lots of tempting DIY projects." --Seattle Times "Full of ideas to copy for those with not much time." --World of Interiors "Access to some of the most glamorous green spaces from Isabel Marant's own LA oasis to London interiors maven Rose Uniacke's artfully designed conservatory, along with solid advice on how to, in true Gardenista style, 'steal the look.' Beyond the access to beautiful garden spaces, the editors offer up evergreen advice for DIY projects outdoors and the best sources for garden furniture and tools. It's a bit of a Garden Design 101." --Goop "Lust-worthy gardens in a vast array of styles and settings . . . it's a source you'll return to again and again over a lifetime in pursuit of both big landscaping transformations and weekend projects. As visually enchanting as it is brimming with practical advice, Gardenista shows readers that, just as with interior design, there are countless ways to create an attractive and functional outdoor living space--from wild and loose to tailored and lavish, from rustic to minimalist and everything in between." --BookPage, Top Lifestyles Pick "This book by Slatalla (editor-in-chief of the website Gardenista) consolidates years of research and practical experimentation for transforming the basic garden or back yard into an extension of indoor living space. More than mere garden planning, the book explores the additional elements of furnishings, accessories, accoutrements and color, integrating nature and luxury to create an outdoor home setting as a place of personal retreat. Horticultural advice is also woven into the plan. . . . Aided by 480 color photographs, this beautiful book showcases innovative gardening concepts based upon real homes, highlighting details--the placement of beeswax tea candles, tablecloth clamps, and butterfly chairs--in harmony with shade trees, hedge shrubs, and stone walls. The end result is a display of outdoor living space that integrates plants, color, balance, design, and also functionality. Color photos." --Publishers Weekly "A big bouquet of ideas that you can digest over the winter and use to inspire your own outdoor space come spring." --Toronto Star "Includes lushly photographed tours of 12 enviable gardens and planning guides for a variety of climates and colour palettes. The most gorgeous gardening book I've seen in ages." --The Bookseller (U.K.)
