Geraldina Krantz. Garden Design. April 19th , 2018.
A regulating line, wrote the great architect, and theoretician. Le Corbusier, is an assurance against capriciousness. It confers on the work the quality of rhythm. The choice of a regulating line fixes the fundamental geometry of the work.
Yes, this one's a law, not just a rule! It addresses the root meaning of garden, which is enclosure. This, to me, is absolutely critical in creating a sense of refuge and of feeling oneself within nature's embrace.
A rule related to scale and the sculpting of space is this: Go big. Faced with a decision to make a staircase wider or narrower, a pool longer or shorter, a pergola higher or lower, the answer is almost always the former.
When selecting plants for a relatively small space, do not go color crazy, stick with a more monochromatic scheme of cooler colors (such as blues, violets, yellows and silvery greens) otherwise you may end up with a garden that feels close and confined.
