Read an Excerpt

At a time when life’s demands push us to the edge, many are seeking a landscape of refuge and tranquility that is more in harmony with nature. Spaces that restore and offer an escape from our everyday stress have now been proven to enhance healing and longevity. Landscape architect Mary Palmer Dargan offers a new book with a central mission to provide the individual homeowner with a guide to lifelong landscape design.

Building on the principles of Dargan’s first book, Timeless Landscape Design: The Four-Part Master Plan, she integrated life lessons learned over the course of almost forty years of practice in residential landscape design and a commitment to environments that restore balance, promote well-being and engage lifelong communities. Using both eastern and western design principles, her holistic approach to lifelong landscape design provides a sensitive site development philosophy for existing and new residences. The book explores landscape patterns that inspire health and longevity and provides a how-to guide for creating harmonious outdoor spaces that reduce stress and uplift the body and soul.
