When asked to design a garden recently, my conversation with the homeowner was almost entirely prepositions - words and phrases which locate in time and space; over, under, around, and through. We looked up, down, along, beside, and behind. And further discussed across, amidst, between, opposite, and underneath. These perspectives lead our senses through the garden. What do we want to see and what is in the way of the view? What will we hear and smell? Where will we touch and taste? Be inquisitive and explore when designing; use all angles guided by the five senses.
