Arts and Crafts Gardens
The idea of the garden as an outdoor living room, a seamless extension of the planning and decoration of the house, was an Arts and Crafts invention. Guided by a rejection of ostentatious display and an insistence on simplicity, craftsmanship, tradition, and a reverence for nature in all its forms, Arts and Crafts designers established a moral agenda in garden-making.
