Description - New Garden Design by Zahid Sardar

From vegetable and succulent gardens to sculpture and rose gardens to mountain and waterfront gardens, "New Garden Design" covers a range of interpretations incorporating walls, fountains, pavilions, canals, pools, terraces, and groves in unexpected ways. The resulting new garden is a pleasure garden vested with spiritual, symbolic, and ecological intent. A modernist interpretation of Roman stone furniture and freestanding walls punctuate the space behind a 1970s ranch house. A home designed by Bernard Maybeck is accented with a freehand composition of urns, cement pipes, and rusty objects, as well as over a thousand species of plants. A grove of olive trees underplanted with rosemary and lavender fields gives personality to two acres surrounding a house designed by modernist Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta.Garden ideas spring from many sources, and new gardens today, abstract in design and with seemingly no connection to the formalities of a paradise garden or its Persian, Indian,or Greco-Roman and Mediterranean antecedents, echoes them all. "New Garden Design" aims to show how many ancient lessons haven't been forgotten. These gardens are fertile ground for creation, perception, and meditation.
