An arched stone gate, a millstone path, a blue-and-white tiled pool with a quiet fountain, brilliant marigolds, stone sculptures of playful angels, and stately lions—the Mexican garden is a serene oasis that displays a diversity and ingenuity that is truly astonishing.
Mexico’s temperate climate, conducive to outdoor living, combined with its Indian and Spanish heritage have resulted in a unique style of design and architecture. Through more than four hundred magnificent photographs and detailed text, Patios and Gardens of Mexico displays the amazing sense of variety and originality characteristic of the Mexican garden.
