Description
Award-winning landscape designer Douglas Coltart offers practical instructions for designing and renovating spacious gardens, with an eye towards issues unique to those working with at least a third of an acre of land. This book will enable gardeners to make a range of positive changes, such as anchoring the garden into the surrounding landscape, making the most of arrival space, creating focal points, working with scale and proportion, and cultivating a sense of spatial unity. Using illustrated case studies, the author recounts triumphs (and tribulations) from his past projects. With practical instructions, inspirational case studies, and photos of spacious gardens worldwide, this book will prove an indispensable resource for amateur and professional garden designers.
