Review

"The perfect dream journal for winter has finally arrived. Orr gives garden owners their say and nurtures dreams, scattering how-tos and lists of plants among his more than 200 photographs.
--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

I've been waiting to see this book for months and I wasn't disappointed. First, it is beautiful to look at with engaging and often unusual photography (many of the urban gardens you wouldn't expect to see in a traditional garden book.) The gardens range from modern to more traditional but always with an eye out for sustainability. The author writes well and authoritatively on ideas like permeability, water usage, native plants but best of all the topic never strays far from how to make a garden beautiful. This is an excellent book for people who are looking for new ways to rejuvenate their backyards or start a new garden in a new property. Inspirational to gardeners both new and experienced. I loved the sections on street gardening and community gardens.

The photography is first rate and inspiring. An added plus is that many of the homes and gardens are in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I live, so it was extra-cool to see what some folks in challenging areas (hilly, clay soil, bedrock, wind, fog, more wind) were able to accomplish.
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.

I enjoyed the book. It reads like a series of magazine articles. It isn't a how-to book, more a discussion of current gardening trends with beautiful and interesting examples. Unfortunately, it isn't properly produced as an e-book. The photos are small and are blurry when enlarged. The captions often appear on the next page and are the same type as the narrative, making for a confusing read. I've experienced the same thing with other pictured e-books. Perhaps the editing hasn't caught up to the technology. Having said that, I think it is definitely a book worth owning.

Like a good angel sitting on your shoulder, Stephen Orr is the garden friend that nudges you toward creating a garden that is sustainable AND beautiful. Those concepts didn't use to sit on the same plate. Stephen's vision for what gardens can be has produced a book that is equal parts inspiration and how-to. Tomorrow's Garden is at home on the coffee table to look at -- and dream with. It is also at home on the potting table or wheelbarrow.
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.
