How does an individual garden relate to the larger landscape? How does it connect to the natural and cultural environment? Does it evoke a sense of place? Bill Noble—a lifelong gardener, and the former director of preservation for the Garden Conservancy—helps us answer these questions by sharing how they influenced the creation of his garden in Vermont.
For 30 years Bill Noble has worked as a garden designer and professional in garden preservation. As Director of Preservation for the Garden Conservancy, he was instrumental in the preservation and restoration of dozens of gardens throughout the United States.
In his newly released book, Spirit of Place: The Making of a New England Garden, he describes the pleasures and challenges—both aesthetic and practical—of creating a garden that feels deeply rooted to its place. His
garden is included in the Smithsonian Institution’s Archive of American Gardens and has been featured in Martha
Stewart Living, House & Garden, The New York Times, Washington Post and the Garden Conservancy’s Outstanding American Gardens.
