We may have a wider approach to garden design if we have been helped to appreciate other forms of art: to be aware of basic principles – balance, repetition, harmony, and simplicity – which apply to all forms of creativity. To look for these ideas in painting and architecture, or to hear them in music, has certainly influenced me as much as knowing whether to put a plant in the shade, or in full sun.
