This vintage book contains a treatise on the general principles of 'outdoor art', with suggestions for its application, as well as remedies for common gardening problems. This book is highly recommended for anyone with an interest in naturalistic landscape design, and would make for a great addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: “Unity”, “The Natural Style”, “Open Lawns”, “Curved Lines”, “Grouped Trees”, “Use of Shrubs”, “Union of Buildings with Grounds”, The Architectural Style”, “Proper Geometrical Lines”, “Closely Shaven Lawns”, “Trees in Rows”, “Clipped Trees and Shrubs”, etcetera. Frank Albert Waugh (1869 - 1943), was an American landscape architect whose career focused upon recreational uses of national forests, the production of a highly natural style of landscape design, and the implementation of ecological principles. Many vintage texts such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now, in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
