A garden is a complex of aesthetic and plastic intentions; and the plant is, to a landscape artist, not only a plant – rare, unusual, ordinary or doomed to disappearance – but it is also a color, a shape, a volume or an arabesque in itself.
Roberto Burle Marx
A garden must combine the poetic and he mysterious with a feeling of serenity and joy.
Gardening is how I relax. It’s another form of creating and playing with colors.
Oscar de la Renta
Gardening is not a rational act.
I don’t like formal gardens. I like wild nature. It’s just the wilderness instinct in me, I guess.
