The Composed Garden: Harland Hand's Western Garden as Art

THE COMPOSED GARDEN is the culminating work of one of California's most brilliant garden designers, Harland Hand. Lushly illustrated with photographs of Hand's gardens, this meticulously written guide describes his distinctive design principles, as well as practical strategies for using plants, hardscaping, repetitive and irregular elements, and texture and color in the garden. Brainy, ambitious, and uncompromising, THE COMPOSED GARDEN presents a unified and detailed theory of landscaping that emphasizes drama, ease of maintenance, respect for natural forms, and emotional power.
