Read in June, 2008

Beautiful pictures of man-made landscapes. Places where one could stroll, or sit, or contemplate the view. The few before and after pictures were startling -- they make clear that these aren't natural landscapes at all, but gardens created by very wealthy people with access to lots of labor and heavy machinery. This seemed to contradict the text, which spoke about peace and contemplation and quiet states of being. I'd love to see attempts at similar results on a smaller scale, (a middle-class family's yard?), working more with the natural shape of the land.
