KIRKUS REVIEW

In focussing her attention on this aspect of landscaping, Miss Goldsmith has recognized a definite trend in American life. Through photographs (over 200) and running text, through arrangement of subject matter and selection of problems, she had made practical, as well as artistic, use of material dealing with every aspect of utilizing the outdoors to extend indoor living. She meets the needs of different parts of the country, different types of families, different pocket-books. She takes up the problems of entrances, of service adjuncts, of relation of grounds to house and windows, of vistas, of functional values, of planting schemes, and so on. Thorough, suggestive, and practical. A book for architects, for builders, for landscape designers and horticulturists, for nurserymen, for decorators. But it need not be confined to professionals. Any man or woman interested in the practical problems presented will find the book stimulating and delightful.
