Whether a home is a great place to live often depends on what lies beyond its walls. The landscape, when it has a well-thought-out shape and character, gives a home much of its character and satisfaction. Here, two of New York's leading landscape architects, Edmund Hollander and Maryanne Connelly, guide readers through a series of remarkable landscapes and gardens, explaining how to apply their techniques, no matter what the size of the reader's property. Lavishly illustrated with more than 1,000 color photos, The Private Oasis focuses on built elements in the landscape including the entry, seating and gathering places, outdoor dining, swimming pools, water features, and tennis courts.
