"A private tour of Wave Hill... the history, design principles, and plants...and how they change through the seasons." --Better Homes and Gardens

"A thorough and fascinating history of an amazing garden. Nature Into Art treats us with an informative and inspiring story of excellence, variety, and perseverance." --Martha Stewart, author, entrepreneur, founder Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia

"Like Wave Hill itself, these pages make an indelible impression--wildly intimate, possibility-laden, provocative--leaving me wide awake and hungry for a visit." --Margaret Roach, author of A Way to Garden

"Ever since I moved to New York City 30 years ago, I've thought of Wave Hill as my own private garden. But I don't mind sharing. It's a horticultural escape for concrete-weary city folk in all weather, and Ngoc Minh Ngo's poetic photographs capture the passing seasons beautifully." --Stephen Orr, author and editor

"By marrying plantsmanship, artistry, and human comradery, this iconic garden has led the way, earning its place in gardening history and inspiring many to be creative and bold." --Fergus Garrett, head gardener, Great Dixter House and Gardens

"Nature into Art explores different areas of the gardens, with helpful information about the plants, techniques and design choices that define this remarkable garden." --NYC's City Guide
