A master landscape architect, Arend Jan van der Horst presents a pictorial review of gardens that he and his staff have designed in the last decade. This renowned Dutch designer makes magnificent use of space in his works, so his clients enjoy a feeling of greater dimensions on their properties through broad sweeps of plantings and water elements. His skills are expressed in his employment of diverse design styles — architectural, romantic, spiritual, classical, and naturalistic, all featured in this work. The accompanying bilingual text imparts information on the concepts and details of individual works, providing readers with insight into the latest European trends in garden design.
