Outstanding American Gardens: A Celebration l 25 Years of the Garden Conservancy

We are celebrating our 25th Anniversary with a beautifully illustrated book that documents a selection of the outstanding public and private gardens that we have worked with since our founding in 1989. The book will be released by Abrams on September 22 and showcases eight gardens we have helped preserve and 42 of the more than 3,000 private gardens across the country that have been opened to the public through our Open Days program.

The private gardens cover a wide variety of regions, habitats, designs, and plants, from early spring through autumn. Featured private gardens include Panayoti Kelaidis’s rock garden in Denver, CO; Deborah Whigham and Gary Ratway’s collection of native and Mediterranean plants and earth walls in Albion, CA; and James David’s imaginative mix of heat-tolerant plants, rills, and pools in Austin, TX.

Stunning photographs and engaging narrative bring the stories of these diverse and remarkable gardens to life.

See a list of all of the gardens featured in the book.

The books will be sold at $50. Place your pre-order now — at a discount — through your favorite online retailer, such as Amazon or Barnes and Noble.

Then & Now

Our Silver Anniversary is a prompt to remind ourselves that gardens are living works of art. They evolve and change, as a result of the passing of time, of natural forces, and, we hope, the guiding hand of careful curators and community supporters.
