In A Clearing in the Woods , landscape photographer Roger Foley brings luxuriant green spaces, quiet water features, and colorful plantings to life. Over the past thirty years, he has collaborated with many noted landscape designers and architects, many of whom have transformed the profession with radical experimentation and diverse ideas to create a contemporary approach to garden design.

A Clearing in the Woods presents twenty-six gardens across the United States: seaside and mountain, desert and countryside, urban and rural. Foley's exquisite photographs illuminate the work of such designers as Raymond Jungles, Edwina von Gal, Charles Stick, and Oehme, van Sweden & Associates. This remarkable blend of designers and projects--with styles ranging from classically composed geometric gardens to eclectic modern green spaces--represents the diversity of contemporary landscape design. Descriptions of each garden complement the visual presentation, highlighting sources of inspiration and design intent.
