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.
Le Corbusier hits on the two aspects, a bit paradoxical, perhaps, that make the regulating line so valuable. 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.
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.
