I will be sharing several Powerpoints.  One is about the Spirit of Stone and reviews the many ways natural stones can be used in landscape design.   Modern landscape architecture is replete with examples, as well as ancient cultures.

  2. Hi there! Keep it up! This is a good read. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about landscape in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about landscape.
    According to Jackson: "From 1577 with Harrison's Description of Britain onwards, a new awareness of the aesthetic nature of landscape emerged as a new kind of topographical writing flourished..." Originally the term was translated landskip which the Oxford English Dictionary refers to as the corrupt form of the word, gradually to be replaced by landscape. The English word is not recorded as used for physical landscapes before 1725.
