The Small Place (Paperback)
Its Landscape Architecture
Landscape design is often associated with estates, public works, and other grand properties.
The same design principles can be successfully applied to area of any size. Even small properties can be transformed with attention to flowers, shrubs, trees and lawns. The Small Place : Its landscape Architecture - a notable book in the history of the field - provides practical advice on how different plants and plantings can complement on another and be enjoyed throughout the year. Focusing not just on spring and summer, the designers in the book explain how flowers, trees and shrubbery can be planted in the same property to provide exceptional beauty month after month. Full of creative and clever ideas and with contributions from design luminaries, The Small Place features plans for both formal and informal gardens, a hillside property, a property in the shade, two gardens on one property, the planting of an approach and drive turn, and a layout for a city property, among others. The book is complete with line plans and ninety-six period black and white photographs. With its celebration of flowers, evergreen and deciduous plants, The Small Place is as inviting and rewarding as the gardens it describes.
