Why American Gardens Disappoint.
The reason why American garden
ing has not yet come up to the stand
ard of the Europeans is simply that
we do not pay enough, says a writer
in Country Life in America. We em
ploy Incompetent landscape designers
or none; we beat the nursery mau
down on his plants; we are not will
ing to pay a first-class gardener what
he is worth. Yet we are 'Mead game"
when it comes to yachts, automobiles,
horses, dogs and houses. Why should
not our wealthy men be equally will
ing to pay for good gardens?
I believe they will. These things
are all parts of the same outdoor life.
The more self-respect a man has the
more he values his family life and
the more willing he is to spend as
much on his outdoor living room as on
one of his indoor rooms.
The writer then describes a land
scape garden In a Pittsburg back yard
which cost about $7,00U. The effects
are certainly splendid.
