Abstract:
A series of 35mm color slides depicting landscape compositions incorporating arid climate plants was evaluated by a panel of experts to determine a correlation between the strength of four design principles (line, form, texture, and color) and the visual preference of the general public for these compositions. The results indicate that there is a positive correlation between preference and the strength of the design principles. It is felt that the results of this study support the idea that the four design principles do in fact influence preference in plantings that do well in arid climate environment.
