Monet's idea had been to create a garden like no other in its arrangement and extent. For example, he had a profusion of plants tossed into vast squares like patches of cabbages, beans or carrots. The result achieves an unbelievable intensity. Nothing is left to chance: as in his paintings, where everything appears to be spontaneous and haphazard but is not, the garden is planned with a great deal of calculation, experience, and knowledge of the laws of harmony. Few people could use the space so wisely.
