Hinck and Wall – Books About Garden History, Landscape Architecture & Early Horticulture

I am busy researching an article for Landscape Middle East about the noteworthy and interesting landscape Architect and garden designer Beatrix Jones Ferrand.   In my digging around, I stumbled across Hinck and Wall – antiquarian book sellers who specialize the History of Gardens, Landscape Architecture & Early Horticulture.  The books are decidedly pricey…but if you are into that sort of thing….me, I just love the art work.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    There is a book called , The Gardens of Beatrix Farrand. Great book.
    I found it in a small independent book store in Ukiah about 20- 25 years ago.

    Also if you can link into the U.C. Berkeley LA Library, they inherited her book collection including her collection of Gertrude Jeckyll’s work.
