This past Sunday, we swung by Maisonry in Yountville for a book signing by San Francisco design writer Zahid Sardar. Sardar’s New Garden Design: Inspiring Private Paradises features the work of many of the country’s leading garden designers, covering a wide range of garden interpretations incorporating fountains, pools, terraces, and sculptures, with plantings ranging from sculpted lavender bushes to free-form botanicals. Available from Amazon for $26.40.
