Gale Nurseries: Four Generations of Garden Excellence

Many of the Philadelphia region's finest gardens were designed by the Gale family and this new book showcases some of their best work. Chuck Gale, third generation landscape designer, envisioned this book years ago after seeing some of his father’s garden creations fade away when properties changed hands. He called in Adam Levine, a regular writer for Martha Stewart Living to not only write the garden essays, but also to manage the project from beginning to end. The book was meticulously crafted and designed under the careful eye of Charles Nix and George Scott of Scott&Nix and printed by The Studley Press. Finally published late in 2008, it has been a holiday hit with everyone who’s paged through the 35 profiled gardens. Don’t know if and when it will be available for purchase but it does offer a window into some gorgeous Main Line backyards that few will ever see otherwise. Here are a few favorite views:
