Classic Home Gardens - 2019 #219
How does your garden grow? Probably with lots of careful planning, dedicated tending, learning from successes and failures and endless patience. All of the featured green thumbs and designers in Classic Home Gardens agree that the rewards are worth the effort. Here’s how we’ve showcased the fruits of their labors: 
 
• Take in the beauty of a cottage garden that, after years of trial and error, now thrives in coastal Maine. 
 • If you’ve ever been inspired by a picturesque locale in a movie, you’ll appreciate the Hamptons garden that takes its cues from a classic English film. 
 • Better later than never—see how the garden on our cover became a labor of love for an interior designer who made her dream a reality.
 • Meander through a flower-filled backyard that seduced one of our photographers with its secluded spaces and clever planting combinations. 
 • Learn how to use old-world aesthetics to transform your outdoor space into a welcoming sanctuary from modern life.
