CONT

Abordons [...] le domaine du citadin évadé ou celui du villageois. [...] L'un comme l'autre se trouvent [...] en face d'une donnée commune qui, elle, modifie la conception du jardin. Cette donnée est la campagne, venant souvent au contact même de la propriété et parfois y pénétrant sous l'aspect d'espèces végétales spontanées ou qui caractérisent une région. Une telle situation offre le plus souvent des horizons dégagés vers les champs, les bois, la rivière, etc.
