Somewhere in the history of homeownership, the idea of curating your property became focused on a clean-cut, mono-cultured lawn of grass. These days, however, we're seeing more and more homes sporting gardens, as well as a recent movement in contemporary gardening to return to the wilderness, aesthetically landscaping with native plants for a seamless merger with their natural surroundings. 

In a forthcoming book, award-winning Westchester-based photographer Andre Baranowski hones in on this rising trend of rejecting manicured styles, surveying 12 breathtaking gardens across the northeast by esteemed landscape architects such as Oehme, van Sweden; Fernando Caruncho; Jorge Sanchez; and Piet Oudolf.

Below, see a handful of these gardens from the local region flaunting an unconventional kind of beauty: wildly flowing with indigenous plants, old-growth trees, vivd patches of wildflowers and perennials, succulents, un-pruned bushes, and ornamental grasses.

“As a photographer, I want to appeal to your emotions through images I have been fortunate enough to capture and share in this book,” says Baranowski in the book's introduction.
