About the Author

Patrick Mooney is an award-winning landscape architect who teaches at the University of British Columbia. He writes, lectures and consults in the areas of restorative landscapes, planting design and multi-functional urban landscapes that support biodiversity.


"Planting Design begins with a comprehensive overview of the scientific theories which explain why people have such strong emotional responses to nature. Dr. Mooney then distills this research into practical design principles that help us understand how our aesthetic preferences are formed through spatial structure, pattern, colour and light. This book validated many of the intuitive decisions I made over years of practice - it will be an interesting read as well as a source of inspiration for both the novice garden designer and the seasoned landscape architect." - Andrea Cochran, Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture
