--By Jan Gardner, February 27, 2011 Boston Globe
What makes it armchair-worthy: We might be drawn in by the images, but as we pore over the text, consider its lessons, we begin to reshape our own vision of how to plant our own gardens for tomorrow. --Barbara Mahany, Tribune Newspapers
[Orr] devoted a year away from his home bases to find gardens that not only reached a level of sustainability in plant choices, water usage and preservation of other resources, but that also looked delightful. --Debra Prinzing, Los Angeles Times
"But, wisely, [Orr] resists a didactic tone, concentrating instead on describing small plots whose modest beauties speak volumes. There are intriguing designs here for any gardener." --Dominique Browning, The New York Times
Given the forward-looking issues it addresses, the differing climates and conditions of the gardens featured, plus its sheer joie de vivre, this is a book of international stature... --Rob Cassy--Garden Illustrated

But, the font. Oh my word. Or should I say, .. .. ..... That's right. Those little dots? That is the experience I had trying to read it. The nursery/bookstore where I bought this book had lighting so bright you could do microsurgery under it and that is exactly the type of illumination you will need before you can get past the first couple of lines. And a magnifying glass. Bring that too. I got the book home and wondered how the heck it could have shrunk during a short car ride. I can't read it and that kind of ruins it for me. I'm 53 and I can barely flail through it with reading glasses at a 200 strength.
It may be "tomorrow's garden" but if you are over 20 years of age you will need yesterday's eyes to read it.
Stephen has curated gardens across the country that offer an intimate glimpse into what amateur gardeners have done -- with few resources -- to create spectacular, inspiring gardens. You will love this book. I like the size too.
