Beyond the magnificent old walls and gates of Charleston's historic homes lie lush private gardens of extraordinary beauty and distinction. This book presents twenty-five of the city's most superb private gardens in color photographs and essays, from the meticulous restoration of a classic, early-nineteenth-century landscape to the lush attraction of a typical Charleston garden, to a rare collection of exotic tropical plants. The Private Gardens of Charleston offers a detailed view of these gardens in color photographs and essays which explore the diversity of gardening interests and styles, ranging from the elegant distinction of a "typical" Charleston garden-narrow, shady and verdant, and accented with the glorious color of azaleas and camellias-to an exotic garden containing a rare collection of tropical palms. Louisa Cameron presents the story of each garden with perception and intelligence, describing its background and unique artistry. The author provides useful information on a variety of plants, trees and gardening techniques that are successful in this area. The owners tell of their achievements and mistakes, offer problem-solving solutions to design and growth, and recall the personal and social joys a garden can inspire. Complementing the text are Mrs. Cameron's vibrant color photographs that capture texture, design and ornamentation in detailed perspectives of gardens, as well as inviting views from porches and walkways. The Private Gardens of Charleston offers an intimate tour of gardens which are rarely seen by the public. It is a book for those who love gardening, landscape design and the beauty of nature.

One of the great things about Charleston gardens is the element of surprise they hold

I wanted parterres and garden rooms that fowed from one to the other, and for it to be more formal toward the house and then less so away from house. One of the great things about Charleston gardens is the element of surprise they hold. That’s what we wanted to create with this one. There’s an t hedge cutting through the garden from one side to another right now, and there’s no telling what’s behind it.

Knights from Bernin
I take a house and Garden tour of Charleston every year, and I honestly feel my photos are far better! A lot of the photos could be of any garden in America. They are focused on details and not on overall landscape architecture or scope. There are a few that definitely remind me of the beautiful walled gardens or impeccable landscape, but not enough to pick up this book again. It doesn’t draw you in like many other gardens of Charleston books.

A bit dated, but I knew that when I bought it. Still spectacular.

you don't always get a chance to see the gardens behind the gates and fences in Charleston, SC. This book gives you a great treat of allowing you to see what many others do not get a chance to ever view for themselves. Lovely photos.
Dandr
Beautiful photographs accompanied by captivating description of the gardens of historic Charleston. If you want a private tour of Charleston gardens, then this book is for you.
Moonworm
I was a little bit disappointed in this book as I remember lovely gardens in Charleston when I holidayed there several years ago. I would have liked to have a bit more detail and the names of some of the stand out plants

I must say I was very disappointed with this book. Although there are plenty of photos of the various gardens, the photography is in my opinion very poor. The pictures lack "life". They are dark, some seem to be out of focus, and I would describe most of the pictures as being " lackluster, or lifelss." They are just not of the quality one would expect from this type of book.
For someone who loves to pour over beautiful pictures of mature gardens to drink in all the inspiration one can, you will be disappointed as I was.

If you haven't had the opportunity to see the beautiful gardens of Charleston in person, then this book should suffice until you can get there. Twenty-five private gardens are presented here with color photos and an essay for each. All of the elements that make these gardens so special - brick walls and pathways, neat boxwood hedges, colorful flowers like azaleas and camellias, fountains, wrought-iron gates and cobblestoned courtyards - are on delicious display. Various garden styles are represented here - classical, contemporary, an atrium garden and the garden of a palm collector are just a few examples. The author's own garden, featuring neat brick-edged beds filled with roses and perennials is included.
