PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
James van Sweden, the internationally renowned landscape designer, shows us how to give 'good bones' to the garden, whether yours is an intimate space or a large estate.
He introduces concepts of space, proportion, and scale, and using examples from his design portfolio, shows us how to implement ideas for a garden with a fresh, contemporary look that complements the home style and personality of the owner.
If you are planning new outdoor space, take a look at this book. It's filled with photos and elegant concepts from one of our contemporary masters and it is well worth reviewing.
