Format: Hardcover
Peter Joel Harrison's books are full of accurate drawings of period fences, gates, gazebos, trellises, pavement and garden walls. They are tools for anyone who's restoring an 18th or 19th century home or landscape. They are perfect inspiration for anyone who hopes to infuse some of yesterday's charm into a new project. Harrison provides a valuable service to architects, designers, preservationists, landscapers and homeowners by researching, recording and presenting the details of historic homes and gardens. I've started using ideas from this book in my designs, and they are better for it.

I am a Landscape Designer interested in historical architecture in the New England Area. The entire series of books by Peter Joel Harrison should be in every designer's library. They are an excellent source for restoration work, and a valuable tool when discussing ideas with clients. Anyone interested in beautiful garden details will be inspired by the wonderful drawings.
I purchase the original release of the fence and pavement books several years ago, and I now have copies of the updated issue. Updating to the newer editions is well worth it.

But, as an owner of a high end wood fence manufacturing company who is obsessed with the details of fencing, it speaks to me!

For heavens sake, pick a few pages other than just chapter headings. I can't make a decision without viewing the author's clarity of writing or detail drawing
