Join the Garden Conservancy and the Chicago Botanic Garden for a webinar with avid gardener and preservationist Ben Lendhardt about his new book Gardens of the North Shore of Chicago and the gardens it includes.
Gardens of the North Shore of Chicago features 25 private gardens (and the Chicago Botanic Garden)—many published here for this first time—organized by design into four thematic chapters: Classic, Contemporary, Country, and Naturalistic. Engaging descriptions based on detailed interviews with the garden owners provide personal and historical context and background about the properties and their designers. More than 225 lush photographs by noted landscape photographer Scott Shigley create a rich visual narrative.
