One thought on “Gardenista: A Manual for Modern Outdoor Living

  1. Lorilin

    Gardenista is all about the outdoor garden There are a whole lot of inspirational backyard jungles to look at in here, and though they are all gorgeous, this is not a book for the everyman gardener Most of us are not going to be able to copy these looks I m talking about indoor atriums and walled in courtyards and 25 foot ponds located on sprawling acreage of native grasses and flowers.Still, the book is stunning and fun to look through It s divided into six parts Part One features inspirational [...]

  2. Pam

    Despite the fact that this book focuses on professionally designed gardens of rich people and it promotes expensive gardening accessories, I liked the book Why because many of the gardens had interesting contemporary elements that I could imagine creating But the main reason is that many of the gardens shown are relaxed comfortable gardens rather than the artificial mulched regimented gardens you see across the American suburban landscape The author promotes leaving your lawn a little bit long, [...]

    This was a very soothing book to flip through as escapism I was able to give it a 5 star rating because, unlike some of the other reviewers, I was under no delusion that I would actually try to plant such gardens Yes, they require a lot of money and a certain amount of space, but I just wanted to look, not recreate them hence, no frustration.

  4. Natalie

    Basically a catalog of expensive looking tools and methods Not enough great photos, not very accessible to anyone who does not already consider themselves gardening elite And honestly, not enough green This seemed to be about everything in a garden that is not plant related.

  5. Phyllis

    Color photos, close up shots of plants and architectural elements, descriptions of specific features and owners decisionsis book provided inspiration and ideas to incorporate and dream about.I enjoy visiting touring local residential gardens so when I heard about this book, which features thirteen gardens located throughout the world, I knew I had to read it I found it interesting that several of these gardens are situated in California, and ironically a few in my town of Mill Valley In fact, I [...]

    I was lucky enough to win this book from the publisher While many of the gardens featured are very attractive, they are all large and expensive, and are beyond the reach of most people The design ideas at the back are quite laughable, and include how to paint a fence black hint it involves getting black paint and a paintbrush , and how to ruin the look of wood handled tools by painting them a glossy black I love plants and gardening, and I got a couple of ideas from this book, hence the 2 stars [...]

  7. Katrina

    Great ideas, many of them with restricted colors although I gravitate towards this too.I hate the author went from California, NYC, The deep south and then London but forgetting even a hint of midwest zones.So she touches on 3 areas where one could adapt a design but no one in IL or Michigan or even Canada This was disappointing I also am curious if she gave stores a shoutout for a gift card or something snicker if she received a compensative reward, good for her.

  8. Benjamin Chandler

    A nice collection of images and ideas for designing your yard Not everything dazzled me, but there were some very nice gardens pictured with some lovely ideas to put in my back pocket in case I ever get to design a back yard.

  9. Stefanie

    When I win the lottery I ll be able to style my garden like the ones in this book Great nature photography though.

  10. Onceinabluemoon

    Love to garden and always enjoy garden pics Liked the addition of products and places to purchase.

  11. Rachael

    Good variety of gardens, I liked the supply list and store options in the back, easy to pick and choose which ones to read about Doesn t need to be read start to finish.

    First, I hope future editions will be updated to note that wrought iron outdoor furniture manufacturer Woodard is still in business and, beginning in 2015, began making their mid century classic Sculptura chairs and bench again Woodard Sculptura pieces are featured prominently in the book, but are erroneously presented as vintage pieces that are no longer available As long as they are promoting brands and shopping, it would be lovely for the editors of Gardenista to give Woodard, a US based manu [...]

    Stick with the blog and get this from the library Garden designs are amazing but tools section is ridiculous.

  14. Agatha Donkar

    This is a gorgeous book, I want to own it, but all the spaces contained in it are definitely out of the price ranges of almost anyone who would read it It s really pretty aspirational lifestyle porn, and as much as I did love it, it also made me feel sort of shitty, about my tiny back deck garden on my tiny small town townhouse, which could be my problem or could be a problem from the fact that there wasn t a single normal person garden in it I don t know I loved it It also unintentionally makes [...]

  15. Marylou

    You know who would have loved that book My dad He is garden obsessed Or a gardenista as per this book.Whilst this one had some nice pictures of gardens with the required paired text, I don t think I was the target audience, as I am on the indoors decoration.

  16. Christine Gould

    The pictures were beautiful to look at, but I found the content to be lacking Also, in terms of the 100 most useful items, some are no longer available I thought there might be a bit about the how to create the looks other than highlighting a few items All in all, it was okay.
