In my own garden, I remember laying out an arbor, with its posts 10 feet high, and listening to trusted friends wondering whether it was not a little too tall. Thankfully I stuck to my guns, and some 18 years later, wreathed in wisteria and anchored at the ground by clusters of pots, the arbor seems just right.

For example, in laying out one backyard, I projected the lines of its building addition into the garden space and then aligned the swimming pool and wooden walkway with those lines. The result is orderly and cohesive, even after being softened with planting.

First is the idea of underlying order, are that the garden, for all its naturalness, or wildness, is founded on strong principles, what's sometimes known in garden circles as good bones.

Imparted by Ralph Snodsmith, my first official gardening teacher at the New York Botanical Garden and talk radio host (a character whose working uniform was always a forest green three-piece suit), there is no greater planting wisdom. No matter how brilliant a plan one conceives, if the plants are not well planted at the right height, in a sufficiently sized, and properly amended pit, the results will likely be poor. Some rules just can not be broken.

Second, that regulating lines, at least as I employ them, are subjective, it's the designer who identifies and manipulates them to create the garden. And I had to say that the use of the regulating line, more than any other concept, separates professional from amateur design.
Rosemonde Winter Garden Design, 2018-04-21 15:09:44. 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.
Karline Wagner Garden Design, 2018-04-24 17:21:51. 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.
