SUMMARY

The elements of garden architecturepaths, walls, gates, fences, terraces, sheds, lighting, furniture, waterworks, and arttogether form the backbone of any well-designed garden. In this beautifully illustrated and accessible book, legendary landscape architect James van Sweden explains how to design and build a garden like a professional. He leads his readers on a tour through some of his most exquisitely designed gardensin the country, in the city, in the suburbs, and by the shore. "When it comes to planning a comfortable and rewarding garden," van Sweden writes in his Introduction, "the challenges that confront the owner of an estate or a weekend cottage are often substantially the same. The principles and techniques used for organizing a large site work equally well in a more modest setting." Each case study highlights a particular architectural element, breaking it down into practical ideas that any gardener can apply to his or her own garden or yard. The book includes dozens of detailed schematic drawings that can be used to build many of the elements described by the author, along with an extensive, illustrated glossary.Architecture in the Gardenis sure to inspire you with its many practical ideas on how to domesticate your landscape and design an outdoor space that suits your taste as well as your lifestyle.Van Sweden, James is the author of 'Architecture in the Garden', published 2003 under ISBN 9780375501548 and ISBN 0375501541.
