Astro-physicist turned garden designer Rochelle Greayer takes a scientific approach in her new book, Cultivating Garden Style. Greayer, the founder of garden blog Studio G, has created a systematic and thorough style guide– bordering on encyclopedic–for gardens.
Greayer’s book offers tips for creating a garden that reflects your personal style, suggests sources for everything from plants to outdoor furniture, and has many step-by-step DIY projects.
We’re giving away six of Greayer’s books, to three US and three UK readers. Here’s how to enter:
