Detail - If you have only a small piece of land to work with, make the most of it! By taking the environment and your needs into account, you can create a quiet refuge, extend your living space, and enjoy a restful view from your home. Since all gardens start with plants, check the soil for type and acidity, and follow the numerous suggestions for improving poor growing conditions. Design basics present ways of achieving balance and texture, creating focal points and visual interest, linking the garden and house, and setting up water features. Assess your garden's potential and, of course, consider what you want to spend. Decorating ideas -- from paving, walls, and steps to rock gardens, trelliswork, and pergolas -- will stir your imagination. Even build a play area for children! And don't be afraid to go out on a ledge -- or up on the roof -- to put on those finishing touches: an elegant balcony, private vine-filled enclosures, and roof lawns can add to your available space. Full-color photos of picture-perfect gardens, as well as layout plans, serve as guides and inspiration.

Detail - Regionalism has become a much-discussed design issue for landscape architects in recent years. Increased mobility, uprootedness, and the pace of change in an increasingly technological society have all contributed to interest in the concept because it places value on cultural continuity in local areas. This approach to garden design deliberately takes into account the region and attempts to capture the spirit of the place, the plant material, and symbolic qualities that define its natural and cultural character. The articles in this volume lay a foundation for examining regionalism in American garden design. The organization of the papers is by geographical area: the West Coast, the Midwest, the South, and New England. Wilhelm Miller's seminal essay of 1915, The Prairie Spirit in Landscape Gardening, has been reprinted as an appendix. This essay, which is frequently cited but rarely seen, is often regarded as the "regionalist" manifesto.
