Residential Garden Design
BeschreibungResidential Garden Design draws our attention to the important role outdoor living environments play in the quality of our daily lives. Three types of garden are highlighted; starting with a stunning variety of gardens and landscapes for private houses around the world; the second chapter reinforces the value of community garden areas for a range of dwellings from mixed-use residences to townhouses and boutique apartment complexes; the final chapter looks at the profound balance these outdoor garden spaces can bring to our personal well-being and that of the local environment when ecological concerns are placed highest on the list. The book highlights the elements of residential gardens in the planning, design and innovation covering gardens of all shapes and sizes, textures, plants and various materials through the private, community based and ecological designs showcased. Specific garden features and concerns such as lighting, privacy, sustainability, regional characteristics, sensory experience, local ecology and native plantings are fully illuminated with plans and lush photography throughout.
