Tom Turner, Landscape Planning and Environmental Design
“In town and in country there must be landscapes where we can walk in safety, pick fruit, cycle, work, sleep, swim, listen to the birds, bask in the sun, run through the trees and laze beside cool waters.”
Tom Turner, Landscape Planning and Environmental Design
