The area around your home is your haven, your sanctuary, your refuge from the noise and irritation of traffic, eyesores, and nosy neighbors. Or at least it could be if there was some sort of barrier between your front yard and the sidewalk, or if you didn't have to stare at the back of the neighbors' garage when you want to relax on your patio. Landscaping for Privacy brims with creative ideas for minimizing or even eliminating the nuisances that intrude on your personal outdoor space. Scores of real-world examples show you how to keep the outside world at bay by strategically placing buffers (such as berms or groups of small trees), barriers (such as fences), and screens (arbors or hedges, for example) around your property. And the helpful plant lists tell you precisely which varieties to choose in order to enhance your sense of seclusion. If you've ever felt frustrated by the lack of privacy whenever you step outside your home, this inspiring book will steer you toward an achievable solution.

Slow Growth provides an accessible introduction to the art of landscape architecture. Ideas and techniques of naturalistic landscape design are explored in eleven chapters, which are illustrated by Hal Moggridge's renderings of many of his projects. The book begins by discussing the human response to landscape and to being outdoors in the British Isles and explores examples of design organized by an understanding of how people move on foot. Moggridge then examines eighteenth century English landscape style through a series of historic restoration projects, followed by twentieth century projects for rural parks and lakes. The book also includes analysis of urban views and skylines and how these can be safeguarded. The broad scope of Slow Growth will make it an indispensable overview of key issues in landscape design.
