Tree Gardens - Architecture and the Forest

$60.00(AUD)  inc GST

Trees are the most important structural element of any garden. Tree Gardens is the first book focusing on their importance in garden design and landscape architecture. Tree Gardens features both important historical and contemporary landscape design projects ranging from ten to thousands of trees; including works by such well-known designers as Frederick Law Olmsted, Andre Le Notre, C.Th. Sorensen, Daniel Kiley, Peter Walker and Michael Van Valkenburgh, among others. Each case study explains how the scale, context, species and spaces of trees on a particular site establish the expressive structure of the tree garden. Author Gina Crandell makes a fascinating case for the active management of designed forests, including preservation strategies, such as replacement of trees over time. We expect this book to fill a niche in the discourse on contemporary landscape design and to be an important resource for students, landscape architects and horticulturalists alike.
