Above: Landscape architect Dan Kiley was “an infectious character, a hero for those of us who follow and care deeply about this art form,” wrote our contributor Lindsay Taylor (a garden designer herself) last year. For more about Kiley, see An Ode to Landscape Architect Dan Kiley.

Above: In a career that spanned several decades, Kiley “worked with the great architects Eero Saarinen, Louis Kahn, and I.M. Pei. His design vocabulary was influenced by Andre Le Notre, the 17th-century French landscape architect and gardener to King Louis XIV,” says Lindsay Taylor

It was rich in design history, being a Dan Kiley garden with great lessons for readers at every turn. It’s always a dream to showcase gardens that have such a fine balance of landscape architecture and horticultural authenticity.”
