He developed his distinctive style in the gardens of Englands Lake District, where his genius allowed his creations to open out into the countryside. Now, this full-scale biography examines the brilliance that still endures in his landscapes and designs. Present both in private gardens and civic spaces, Mawsons unique talents have influenced garden designers and landscape architects for nearly a century.--from publisher description."@en ;
