As a lifelong garden-lover and fan of imaginative landscape design, I have a particular fondness of water gardens. I’ve been studying the roots of regional garden design concepts, and I’ve been fortunate to have seen many of the world’s finest examples, including the gardens of Ryoan-ji, the serene dry sea of neatly raked gravel in Japan; the damp Zen moss gardens in Kyoto; the formal and ornate fountains of the French gardens of the Palais du Versailles; the relaxed lakeside English landscapes designed by Capability Brown; Villa d’Este, the fabulous fountain garden near Rome; and Generalife in Granada, Spain. My professional interest in the ancient four-part garden style has only increased after seeing the beautifully restored courtyard gardens in Granada last spring. You will find pictures of these famous and elegant gardens, with their linear canals and flowing fountains, in every book on the history of landscape design.
