Fletcher Steele, Landscape Architect

An Account of the Gardenmaker's Life, 1885-1971
The first critical biography of a pivotal figure in the field of landscape architecture
revised edition


For sixty years, Fletcher Steele practiced landscape architecture as a fine art, designing nearly seven hundred gardens, from Boston to Detroit, from North Carolina to Canada. Often brilliant, always original, Steele's work is considered by many to constitute the essential link between nineteenth-century Beaux Arts formalism and modern landscape design.
