giardini la mortella

Russell Page has been a huge influence on my work and the way that I approach a garden.  If you have not read his classic The Education of a Gardener it is a must for any aspiring garden designer.  I cam across this wonderful video of one of his garden il giardini la mortella.  I hope you enjoy it:

    I just finished The Education of a Gardener (a good read for a winter with 54 inches of snow). I think my favorite part was where he changed the course of a river as part of the landscape design. His designs make so much of the current landscaping seem over-wrought and busy. But then again, he once took three years just to get to the point where he was ready to produce a sketch. No one has that kind of patience now.
