Garden design series - Why this Garden Works

Each article is presented by landscape designer, Tracy Rich, who will examine a single garden and provide design tips based on that garden's layout, materials and planting.

Tuinen Mien Ruys

Mien Ruys' own garden in the Netherlands is the ideal place to start a new series on design articles on 'Why this Garden Works'.

Lan Su Chinese Garden

Lan Su is a great example of urban garden design. Its whole purpose is to help people relax and to inspire creativity by connecting with nature, even in the centre of town. 

Hauser & Wirth Garden

The main wow factor of this garden is the large perennial meadow out the back called Oudolf Field after its famous Dutch designer, Piet Oudolf. However, the gallery complex also contains some other very interesting spaces.

Andrew Watts replied to Adrian Noble's discussion Customer Benefits
"My objection to your argument Adrian is that is too simplistic - to say higher pay segment = more profits may be true for some at a customer level, but not all. And certainly not true for all at a company level.

"Some cars will have low margins, but some cars like Land Rover and RR will have much higher margins because they sell to a higher income group."

Adrian Noble replied to Adrian Noble's discussion Customer Benefits
"There is a big difference between the service industry and manufacturing.
In Manufacturing the margins can be lower because they are producing on mass, and it also depends if the product is a commodity, up market bling, or some high tech gadget."
