Finalist, Regional (Adult Nonfiction)

What makes a garden regionally appropriate? Fifteen private gardens designed by leading landscape architects answer that question for Northern California by directly addressing the climate, landscape, and culture they inhabit. They make use of local building materials and craftspeople and offer their owners a unique emotional connection to nature. Firmly planted in time and place, the projects, complete with plans, define not so much a style as an experience.
