About this book

An inspirational and practical book about the benefits of enhancing cities with well-planted gardens, parks and streets, "Parks, Plants, and People" describes the elements of successful public space. It tells how to design, improve and maintain year-round plantings, as well as advocate for public funding and attract private investment.

A renowned public garden designer with twenty-seven years of experience, Lynden B. Miller has changed the face of New York City, providing a connection with nature for neighbourhoods, both rich and poor. She urges the general public, gardeners, urban designers, architects, landscape architects and officials to create and support well-planted parks and gardens as urban oases that have positive effects on the economic welfare of cities and their citizens. Miller demonstrates that beautiful public spaces can transform the way people behave and feel about their cities. Her motto is: make it gorgeous and they will come. Keep it that way and they will help.
