Although the beautiful Washington, D.C., estate of the heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post is temporarily closed, you can still wander its lush gardens in this gorgeous coffee-table book.

Another note of loveliness: The beloved Virginia-based interior designer Charlotte Moss writes the foreword. --GARDEN & GUN

As Markert says in the preface to the book, She paid attention to every detail of the gardens' design and directed their creation with specificity and clarity. Each garden room at Hillwood has its own mood and function, resulting in different forms of beauty at different times of the year. --GARDENDESIGNONLINE.COM
