Very few other building materials are as versatile or as widely desired as natural stone. In the hands of expertly skilled craftsmen and machinists, the range of application and shapes are almost limitless. Looking at the past Mediterranean cultures and what their craftsmen were able to create with marble, which is more delicate than granite, is astounding. Today, stone fabricators have the benefit of machines to accelerate the results with even more precision.
As in nature, the rules of design, not to be confused with personal taste, follow laws that have universal application, not because certain groups of people like architects, artists and fashion designers have decreed what's "in" and what's "out", but rather because of the known effect certain stimuli have on the human brain. A garden design that is unbalanced for instance will make people feel uncomfortable, as will one that is confused and unclear, due to the human craving to understand what's going on. Plants that are not in scale with the objects and spaces surrounding them, will feel out of place, while a sense of disharmony is liable to ensue from flower bed that is a "riot" of color. Why call bad taste nature? Why not call it bad taste!
