Excerpt from Landscape Planning for Small Homes
There is always a curious crowd, and of course its speculations are not always a true indication of public opinion. However, a far more intelligent point Of View on the part of the public is much to be desired regarding landscape architecture what it is, and what it may do for every home owner. The public is more than curious. It is genuinely interested! Most home owners, regardless Of station or income, desire to make their surroundings more attractive, and most Of them actually attempt it, although perhaps not with very great success. However, of those who desire attractive yards, how many realize that at the same time their yards may be made more useful and more convenient?
This general interest has grown to such proportions that the nurserymen have for some time been pressed, by those buying plants, to give advice for their arrange ment and planting. In many cases there 15 no one else at hand to furnish such advice. Some nurseries have tried to sidestep this question, others have refused to give any suggestions, and others, seeing therein an Opportunity to increase their sales, have established landscape departments, with or without charge, according to what has seemed most feasible. Some landscape architects complain that the nurseries should not undertake landscape work. But most professional land scape architects do not want, and many will not even accept, what is termed small business, as they say it does not pay. 80 here is a demand for a much needed service, with no competition, and with little interest shown by those best able to supply the need.
