9780711215061: The Scandinavian Garden

Scandinavian landscape and garden design is original, sophisticated and poetic. Powerfully architectural, with an emphasis on geometry and sculpture, it is an evocative and romantic tradition. The Scandinavian enthusiasm for outdoor living, making the most of the endless summer daylight hours, has meant that garden designers are particularly innovative in treating gardens as outdoor rooms or extensions of the house.Karl-Dietrich Bühler has an unrivalled knowledge of, and enthusiasm for, the gardens of Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland. This book focuses on the best gardens of the region, both the small jewels produced by amateur gardeners and the gardens designed by world-famous landscape architects such as Carl Theodor Sĝrensen and Andreas Bruun. With the aid of full-color photographs and plans, he describes elegant town gardens, and country, woodland and coastal gardens that are carefully designed into their landscapes.
