"In this guide to designing and renovating gardens of one third of an acre or more, Douglas Coltart begins by recommending a careful review of the property to identify its unique qualities. Drawing upon his professional experience as an award-winning landscape designer, he goes on to describe fundamental ground rules for larger gardens, such as anchoring the garden into the surrounding landscape, making the most of arrival space, creating focal points, scaling up, and linking individual elements to form a unified whole. Using diagrams, illustrations and case studies, the author recounts triumphs (and tribulations) from his personal projects and supplements the advice with photographs of large gardens from all over the world."--BOOK JACKET.
