This unique book of over 325 full color photographs takes you into a little-known world of magic, mystery, and color, behind the walls of some of the most exclusive living areas in Mexico. Here you can see what typical visitors are forbidden; a world created by each of the homeowners. As an invited guest, you will witness the ingenuity of Mexican workers with a bent for the exotic, as no two gardens are alike. The variety and creative effort highlights the richness of Mexican architecture that has not diminished with time. Take a trip to Mexicos private gardens and patios through seventeen chapters that illustrate outdoor living and dining rooms, rooftop terraces and shelters, garden walks and sculpture, outdoor fireplaces, and gardens, all in colors of the rainbow. Be inspired to include a Mexican environment into your next outdoor project.
