Landscaping is the design of open spaces through the use of live and inert elements as a way of transforming nature. The projects for gardens and residential landscapes, however, express a different complexity to their larger, public counterparts. Ideas such as privacy and concepts that take the family into account prevail over other considerations. The garden becomes another room of the house and is used on a daily basis. The projects presented in this book respond to a drastic renovation in what we understand to be traditional gardening. Research into materials, respect for the environment, spatial distribution and a profound knowledge of the flora are the concepts used to create these magnificent spaces.
