Editorial Reviews

Along with partner Wolfgang Oehme, acclaimed garden designer van Sweden is known for contemporary garden designs that integrate the landscape with its structural surroundings so that they complement each other. Here he joins with gardening author Christopher to show that architectural elements are essential in developing a successful garden design. Van Sweden focuses on such components as paths, edgings, fences, walls, water, and artwork, explaining that a garden is not a garden without a sound structural organization that uses these elements. Case studies of client gardens and the author's own garden in Washington, DC, encompass a wide range of situations, from town gardens to rural estates as well as seaside gardens. Even though the profiled gardens obviously belong to owners with large budgets, van Sweden shows how these architectural ideals can be incorporated into any garden. A well-illustrated glossary is included. Recommended for most gardening and landscape architecture collections.-Phillip Oliver, Univ. of North Alabama Lib., Florence Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
