Aims and Scope

Garden festivals are often a testing area for new ideas for landscape designers. On a small scale designers can experiment with innovative materials and explore emerging tendencies. The International Garden Festival in Métis in northern Quebec is probably the best-known festival in North America. This publication will explain the role of garden festivals in landscape design and present a selection of 25 gardens from Métis.
