Garden Style Penelope Hobhouse Penelope Hobhouse uses some of the finest gardens in the world to show how to lay out and plant formal, patterned, natural and flower gardens. Her examples range from Italianate Blake House garden at Berkeley, California, with its spectacular curving staircase and rectangular pool, to the Jekyll-inspired planting of white foxgloves in the wild garden at Knightshayes, Devon; from the excitement of the summer flower border at Pontrancart, Dieppe, to the simple greeness of a garden room at La Pietra in Tuscany. But this book is more than a tour of beautiful gardens. Penelope Hobhouse informs, advises and inspires on every aspect of garden design. She explains how to relate a garden to its setting; the importance of establishing a proper structure, whether as an end in itself or as a backdrop for decorative planning; and how to create a successful small garden. These themes are balanced by in-depth portraits of more than 20 gardens, some famous like Great Dixter, Villandry and Giustry,...
History of Landscape Architecture Colloquium: Volume 7: Ancient Roman Gardens Elizabeth Macdougall The nineteen-hundredth anniversary in 1978 of the eruption of Vesuvius was a particularly appropriate time for the Dumbarton Oaks Symposium on Ancient Roman Gardens, for it was this tragedy, which overwhelmed Pompeii, Herculaneum, and the many villas in the surrounding area, that preserved for us such a precious chapter in the history of gardens. It is here that we must start if we would study and understand the development of the Roman garden. Elsewhere throughout the Roman Empire fragmentary remains have survived by chance. In the area destroyed by Vesuvius living cities and villas were preserved, just as they were at the moment of destruction. Only at Pompeii, which is now three-fourths excavated, is it possible to get the feel of an entire city, to study its plan and land use and to experience the role of the gardens and green spaces in the life of the people.
