Award-winning landscape architect Steve Martino brings his new book Desert Gardens of Steve Martino, for a discussion about landscaping for arid climates. Martino’s pioneering designs combine dramatic man-made elements with native plants in gardens that honor the natural ecology of the desert. Starting with the interplay of light and shadow, Martino’s desert-derived aesthetic creates inviting spaces of beauty and color while solving common site problems such as lack of privacy or shade. The book features 21 of Martino’s projects, including several midcentury modern homes and landscape designs in Palm Springs, written by Caren Yglesias and photographed by Steve Gunther.
