In Gardens of the Hudson Valley
“The line between art and nature has never seemed so blurred as it is in the Brine Garden.”
Legendary American landscape design figures—Alexander Jackson Downing, Frederick Law Olmsted, Beatrix Farrand, and Fletcher Steele—all worked in the Hudson Valley.
Gardens of the Hudson Valley celebrates the historic and artistic landscape. Photographers Steve Gross and Susan Daly specialize in architecture, interiors, gardens, travel and lifestyle. Steve and Sue have selected twenty-five gardens between Yonkers and Hudson, including the Brine Garden, the fabled estate gardens – Kykuit, Boscobel, and Olana (open to the public) and other private gardens that combine sweeping views and lush plantings.
Garden writers Susan Lowry and Nancy Berner are the authors of Garden Guide: New York City, revised edition, 2010, Norton. In Gardens of the Hudson Valley they describe each of the gardens, focusing on the history of the site and the strategies for design and plant materials.
