Product Description


According to The American Lawn...grass is the ragged border where the American Dream holds sway, and the lawn itself is the mood ring of the American domestic environment. "New Art Examiner," July/August 1999 This volume helps fill a gap in the field of landscape architecture, whose comprehensive history in the United States remains to be written. But even reads with no scholarly brief will appreciate the rich texture the authors give to the concept of the lawn as a social form...With copious illustrations and archival sources, the volume details how importantly the lawn figures in innumerable aspects of American culture...Editor Georges Teyssot and company have produced a history of the lawn as multicated and visually inviting as their subject. Sara Blair, " Preservation Magazine"
