The first and only book to focus on the modernist gardens of Southern California is now available in paperback. In Private Landscapes, landscape architect Pamela Burton and interior designer Marie Botnick profile twenty significant gardens, and their accompanying houses, by the most celebrated architects of mid century modernism, including Richard Neutra, Rudolph Schindler, A. Quincy Jones, and John Lautner. Featuring Julius Shulman's iconic black-and-white photographs of the original gardens as well as Tim Street-Porter's crisp color images of contemporary restorations and updates, Private Landscapes shows why these gardens continue to provide inspiration for gardeners and designers everywhere.

  • :When you learn that most of the photographs in this book are taken by Tim Street-Porter and the equally legendary Julius Shulman you know you are in for a visual treat."--- the Architectural Review
