:“This explanation is necessary to justify the plan which I recommended for the '''canal''' in this flower garden: for while I should condemn a long straight line of water in an open [[park]], where every thing else is natural; I should equally object to a meandering '''canal''' or [[walk]], by the side of a long straight [[wall]], where every thing else is artificial. . .
:“The banks of this '''canal''', or fish [[pond]], may be enriched with borders of curious flowers, and a light [[fence]] of green laths will serve to train such as require support, while it gives to the whole an air of neatness and careful attention.” [[#Repton_cite|back up to History]]
