Julie Moir Messervy’s Home Outside: Creating the Landscape You Love has won the 2010 Garden Writers of America Gold Award for Best Writing. We’d like to offer our congratulations to Julie, who contributes frequently to Fine Gardening, and encourage people to take a look at the book, which was published in 2009 by The Taunton Press.
Through sumptuous photos and clear, engaging text, Home Outside guides homeowners through the intensely personal process of landscaping their property in keeping with their land, their taste, their home, and their budget. As you read, you begin to see how a landscape designer analyzes an outdoor “remodel,” and you apply the concepts and particulars to your own yard. It’s an enlightening experience that will help you translate vague wishes or dissatisfactions into specific changes that improve your outdoor living space.
