"Athur Edwin Bye, a landscape architect whose public and private garden designs strove for a naturalism so artful that students said he knew how to make the snow fall where he wanted, died at Doylestown Hospital in Pennsylvania on Nov. 25... An advocate of the natural over the formal since the 1950's, Mr. Bye was one of the first to promote the use of native plant materials and the restoration of native woodlands even as other well-known practitioners were installing vast, flat-plane lawns in their translations of corporate modernism into minimalist landscapes."
