I grew up surrounded by forests, and our gardens reflected and blended seamlessly with them. My initially impression of local gardens was really unique. Seeking at them, I experienced no perception of place or even exactly where in the United States I was.
But that all adjusted when I turned a Learn Gardener and uncovered that there had been gardeners, publications and sources which mirrored a perception of area. So, below are a few publications, which I use for inspiration and guidance. These publications span 34 years and replicate the increasing development toward nature-encouraged landscapes.
