Esteemed landscape architect, horticultural specialist, garden consultant, teacher, and floral designer Janice Parker has distinguished herself by rethinking accepted landscape practices
and developing inventive, personal solutions to difficult problems. Designing a Vision is a captivating and inspiring close-up of her practice, with a focus on her creative process and substantial output of works spanning more than three decades.
Thirteen projects are presented in meticulous detail: expressive color photographs, renderings, watercolors, and plans as well as engaging texts on history, client, site, design inspiration, and implementation. Parker s extensive hands-on experience is evident on every page, and especially in the in-depth personal essays that communicate the design philosophies she has developed over the course of her career. Realistic and inspiring in equal measure, Designing a Vision offers guidance in every facet of landscape and design, encouraging garden designers, owners, and connoisseurs to revel in the possibilities of visionary green spaces.
