Gardenista Book Ordering Information

Now In Its 4th Printing

We’re thrilled to announce our new book, Gardenista: The Definitive Guide to Outdoor Spaces, a companion volume to Remodelista: A Manual for the Considered Home. For the past two years, we’ve been working behind the scenes, gathering all of Gardenista’s best design ideas—and visiting dozens of our friends’ gardens from London to LA with our talented photographer, Brooklyn-based Matthew Williams, who captured every image in the book.

Here’s what Rita Konig, the UK designer and contributing editor to the New York Time’s T Magazine, says about the book (and we hope you’ll like it as much): “It’s a book of all the people whose taste I most covet and their gardens rather than a volume of gardens designed by garden designers. It makes me feel, at least, that I too can achieve some of this loveliness in my own backyard. The thing that I love about it is that I feel it is speaking directly to me rather than a gardener’s language—already I want to rush home and start digging.”

Gardenista: A Manual for the Considered Home is available in shops nationwide; order your copy today (see ordering information below) and help us on our mission to demystify good design. Excerpts from recent reviews and links to the full stories below.

“These well-loved spaces are also well lived-in. Slatalla is warm, approachable, lively—and chic. But she lets us in on everyone’s secrets with sections labeled ‘Steal This Look.’ . . . She suggests ideas for paths, fire pits and foot showers, tips for drainage solutions, and a shopping directory that made me reach for my credit card.”The New York Times Book Review

Gardenista achieves the difficult task of being hip and accessible.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Packed full of tasteful gardens that offer a welcome escapism from your own sodden/boring/non-existent (delete as appropriate) garden….The section offering seven classic garden planting palettes is particularly useful.”—The Guardian (UK)

“Slatalla’s forte is dogged research to come up with topics often a touch eccentric coupled with a storyteller’s charming ways. This coffee-table book is that: 13 beautifully photographed gardens in the United States (including one in Austin), England and the Netherlands; useful additions to a standard backyard; 100 favorite everyday objects; and a hefty source list from antiques to seeds.”—Dallas News
