Timeless Landscape Design
The Four-part Master PlaneBook - 2007
The most important ingredients of a powerful landscape are usually not plants, flowers, buildings, or trees. The key to success lies in the basic tools of visual art: the four art elements (line, color, form, and texture) and the broader principles of design such as proportion, scale, and focalization. All gardens that have stood the test of time convey the power these tools hold over the human imagination. Crafting a four-part master plan depends on their skillful application-a lifelong pursuit. The following is a small taste of what these tools are and how they work on the land.
