The design goal is not lines on paper, but landscapes and gardens which have reality in time and space; the paper version is a means to an end, we never see it as the end product.
“To successfully install landscapes that really work with the design intent and evolve instead of devolve the goals, the needs of both vision and component parts must to be addressed and balanced. Project management by the designer through construction is seen as a key element in the best landscaping.”
In constructing landscapes instilling the essence of the design intent into the work as it unfolds is an opportunity to see the full flowering of that design. This is where the art and craft of landscaping and gardening can be realised. The potential of landscape to draw powerfully on the many often separate art media of painting, film, sculpture, theatre and music is finally in the making of it.
