In her new book, Under Western Skies: Visionary Gardens from the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Coast (Timber Press, April 2021), author Jennifer Jewell takes us on a journey to 36 gardens that celebrate the diverse landscapes of the western United States, each of which reflects the very soul of the land on which they grow.

In this webinar, Jennifer will be joined by Roderick Wyllie, one of the garden designers featured in her book, to discuss these gardens, which underscore the strong relationship between garden and place. Wyllie is a partner of Surfacedesign, Inc., an award-winning landscape architecture and urban design firm based in San Francisco, CA.
