The author asks, "Should less be demanded of landscape design as an art than as a science? Isn't it possible that a garden or plaza or park or boulevard must finally be judged as an essay in the tenancy of the earth? If it is to pass such a test (and some of the work shown in this book would gracefully fail), it must look and feel ecologically valid. It must appear to be of its place, not on its place, and its natural materials must seem to belong together with a more than formal relationship." She concludes, "[the artist] as he takes hold of earth, plants, and water, the materials unique to his art, let him only beware lest he destroy though his act of possession the genius of that which he sought to possess."
