Book Description

This distilled introduction to the culture, art, and science of landscape design is an essential primer for the aspiring landscape connoisseur. It will quickly bring you up to speed on a range of topics that influence the shape of the designed landscape, and provide you with a broader, more comprehensive understanding and vision. The Least You Need to Know about Landscape draws from the training, international experience, and research of a landscape architect and perpetual student of the creative process.

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This book is an attempt to bring you into the world of landscape architecture in a very basic, "CliffsNotes" kind of way. I hope it will open your eyes to the range of subject matter in which we landscape architects deal, and arouse your interest in this vital source of life and joy.

More About the Author

I spent a good deal of my childhood looking inside of tulips and imagining what it would be like to have a living room like that, with petals for walls and the sunlight filtering through.
My other habits included hiding under the arched form of an old Spirea shrub, and burying my face in lilac flowers.
I used to walk home for dinner across a fictional landscape, with an imaginary friend named Prince Edward. The name comes from the cigar boxes my father used to sort recycled hardware for his projects. Being outside has always immediately opened my imagination.

I studied design in college, went to NYC without thinking to get my first job. That was a layover on my way to Milan, where I immersed myself in the world of design and Italian life for eighteen years. Che bello! Afterward, I completed a Master's program in Landscape Architecture. I am a designer, communicator, and educator. I started a multi-disciplinary on-line consulting service called pebble-stream, for which I am creative director and senior designer.

Landscape Architects are always getting asked what they do in the winter. I considered that maybe people need to know a little more about the culture of landscape, so I wrote this short book. I hope it is the beginning of a conversation.
