How can you create a garden that works with the landscape rather than fights against it? This title looks at the concept of a garden's design its location onwards from the relationship between a house and its garden, the views inside and out, the owner's personality, and the garden's history. All these elements can be brought to bear on a design to create a garden with a unique sense of place. In fact, a successful design is one that has its roots firmly in its location. One of the aims of this book is to pass on to readers an effective method of collecting visual information, storing it and then putting it to its best use. A section of case studies puts all this theory into practice, showing four of Arne Maynard's gardens and explaining in detail each part of the planning and design.
