and dining room wings at an angle with the centre
of the house, not oniy were these conditions fui-
hiied, but the pian both of the house and garden
gained in interest and variety. The second terrace
shown at the foot of the drawing divides the more
formai portion of the design frorn the wild garden
on the siope of a steep hiii, which is in reaiity a
portion of an oid wood at the foot of the hiii beiow
and which has been in-
ciuded in the generai gar-
den scheme because of its
unusual beauty in the pos-

In pianning a bowiing
green the essential points
to consider are its size,
position in relation to the
house and garden gener-

in those days, it would be difficult to name more
than one or two whose reputations have travelled
far beyond the boundaries of their native country.
But in the seventies came a revival, and much
of the credit for bringing this about is due to
Wilhelm Unger, who came to Vienna from Germany

a better position can be
obtained; but of course
great care would be neces-
sary so that the requisite
amount of sunlight and
air can be obtained, other-
wise difficulties would arise
in keeping the turf in good
condition.
