Adam Levine defends this description of the landscape art of Gale Nurseries as a means to honor the labors of his predecessors. Additionally, this book provides a visual record of the firm’s notable landscape projects for future historians. Gorgeous photographs illustrate more than 30 sites developed for Philadelphia clients, while the text examines each landscaping project in detail, directing attention to special features, hardscape, and plantings. All of the beautifully maintained properties discussed in this work reflect the interest and care of decades of dedicated plantsmen.
