"Sketches, outlines, plans, perspectives, diagrams... Drawing is essential to expressing, understanding and implementing the idea that will lead to a garden's creation."

Dominique Lafourcade is gifted at the art of drawing.

Constantly developing, her gaze ceaselessly explores. She feeds on nature, old books, and meticulous plans from the Renaissance school...

As a landscaper, she reflects, full of flair, her knowledge of her art through her landscape projects. The garden grows dense and compartmentalised around the house, extending living spaces, then gradually connects and blends with the surrounding natural environment.

Straight lines and curves, regimentation and fluidity, exuberance and understatement are all construed in the right balance, in a perpetual quest for harmony.

As fine as medieval illuminations, her garden plans are a real invitation to dream.
